Age 3 VS. Age 4

There is a vast difference between age 3 and age 4.
The picture below is of my precious great-nephew Andrew (age 4)
and the craft he and his MawMaw Gail made together.
The craft was featured in the wonderful blog Skip to My Lou.
Because they had so much fun, I decided that Caleb and I should try it.
I purchased straws, marshmallows in two colors, and was ready to begin.
I thought we were off go a good start when Caleb (AKA Superman) created an airplane.
That is, until he took a big bite out of the airplane.
It seems that a 3 year old Superman is much more interested in eating the marshmallows than in creating an engineering marvel with straws and marshmallows.
Eating seems to be this 3 year old's theme as he enjoyed a popcicle while watching Nana complete the craft project.
I'm ashamed to say that even this 50 something year old's project doesn't look as good as Andrews.
