Your challenge is to build a tree using only the materials below. It should support as many birds/ornaments as possible. The jelly beans or pennies will represent the birds/ornaments. The tree must be constructed on a flat surface. The tree must have a trunk, branches and leaves.

2 sheets of paper
4 inches of tape or 4 mailing labels
2 drinking straws
5 noodles (any kind)
3 spaghetti noodles
10 inches of string
1 piece of chewing gum
3 paperclips
1 6” square aluminum foil
And, lots of jelly beans or pennies (these are the birds/ornaments).

As always, send us your results and pictures!
