    Students loved this project. We used store bought sugar cubes and it was a challenge, students wanted more than 40 minutes to work on these.
    Tip: + Use glue sticks and not liquid glue. The liquid glue breaks down the sugar into a no-workable gel quickly.

    Putting the igloos under a tray is a definite must! Sugar will get everywhere but the trays made it super easy to clean.
