Marshmallow Sculptures

This past Saturday Penelope, Charlotte's cousin, spent the night at our house. As soon as she arrived we started in on a little craft. Here were our supplies:


Long before I pinned this great image of marshmallow animals, I'd planned to make marshmallow sculptures with Charlotte. They even made the cut for our summer fun list. (Note to self: go check that off the list.) I knew that making actual animals was a bit too involved for a 2 year old and 3 year old, so we opted to just make whatever we felt like - mostly triangles, snowmen and butterflies.


Our little craft time ended pretty abruptly. Once they got a taste of those marshmallows they didn't want to waste a single one by poking a toothpick through it. No surprise there, right?!

Looks like great fun and the photos are wonderful!

Next time you'll have to get all three big cousins together for some marshmallow & toothpick sculpture building...I wonder if HE would eat the parts! : )

What a cute idea! I've never thought of that before! I'll have to remember to try that!
