It got cold around these parts in a hurry. I'm going to have to work on more inside stuff to do since going outside and just playing won't be an option quite as often. Today we went for a simple idea that is not likely new to you.
You won't need much, just marshmallows and toothpicks. I highly suggest using very fresh marshmallows. Both times we have done this have been using a bag that was already opened and they seem to lose their "puff" in a hurry.
There's no much need for instructing, as kids just sort of do their own thing with this. That's perfect and sort of the point.
And if playing with food isn't fun enough, at least eating the components (well, just the marshmallows, not the toothpicks) should make up for it!
