Edible Stonehenge

We studied Stonehenge in history today.  Those stones are a fascinating mystery, aren't they? We speculated along with many others over the centuries about what possessed an ancient civilization to schlep huge rocks over long distances and erect them in that place in that way.  We learned the difference between a lentil and and lintel.  Then we made Stonehenge out of rice crispy treats.

 Looks like Noah has some stone fragments on his mouth....
 Noah crumpled a rice crispy treat into a lump and put it far away to represent Silbury Hill, the tallest ancient artificial mound in Europe, almost 30 miles away from Stonehenge.
