You know how we're told NOT to play with our food? Well, here's something that goes against that. Introducing fruit leather tangrams, which is all about playing with your food.
Fruit leather is a great medium to work with. It's thin like paper and has the consistency of plastic, but a little stickier. They can be made in a variety of colors, flavors, and textures (i.e. with seeds or bits of peel).
What I enjoy about the tangram is that it's simple, fun and engaging. The tangram was invented ages ago in China and translates to "seven boards of skill" (since there are 7 pieces to the puzzle). It reached the Western world in the early 1800's, and was very popular in the U.S. during WWI.
