Right?!?! I love it! The assignment was to "make an edible animal or plant cell and label". I took my son to the store and let his imagination run wild. My only advice was to get the fruit roll up sheets vs. rolls, the rest was all him. It's just about the happiest and most colorful science project I've ever seen in all my years of parenting. Other kids made their cells from pizza, nachos, cookies, cakes; so much creativity unfurled. Clever project assigned by the teacher. On the day they turned it in, they all had to bring their own plate, fork, napkin and drink, and a good time was had by all. Lesson learned for mom? Not all homework projects need be despised.
