Eat a Mars Rover

This week we're studying Mars and one of the suggested projects is to make an eatable version of the Sojourner rover. Here's a picture of the actual rover:

And here are the boys' re-creations:

Witt, 3 1/2 years old

Will didn't want to take the time to get his picture taken with his; he just wanted to eat it! :)

Nathan, 5 years old

Here's a back view of Nathan's, too:

If you want to try this, just be warned that you need a thick frosting, similar to that used for a gingerbread house to get it to stick together. Other than than, you might need some earplugs for the amount of noise your children will make after eating them. ;)

That is just too cool. I think I'll go home tonight and make a 1/4 scale space station then eat it. Yumm. Dad
