To go along with our Melting Snow science activity last week, I thought it would be fun to make some marshmallow snowflakes! The kids had a blast. What could be more fun than an activity with marshmallows???
The process is really super simple. All you need is a bag of big marshmallows, a bag of mini marshmallows, and some toothpicks. At first I had Trevor follow my instructions and then just let him have at it to create whatever he wanted. Here's his best effort at a snowflake....
Mackenzie LOVES anything fine motor. She will sit and pour water between two cups for an hour, so I knew that she would enjoy poking marshmallows onto toothpicks =) Trevor worked for a while on his snowflakes and then moved on to doing something with daddy, but Mackenzie stayed at the kitchen table for another half hour just poking marshmallows on each end of a toothpick and lining them up in rows! Here is her best effort....
This was a fun, simple activity for kids of really any age! Have you made any marshmallow creations with your little ones? If not, give it a try!
