Building With Toothpicks & Marshmallows

Just another snowy day with plenty of time inside to keep busy and learn a thing or two.  Today we are building structures, shapes, and letters with toothpicks and marshmallows!

This activity has no rules and no guidelines.  Just make sure you have plenty of supplies because somehow they seemed to disappear every time I turned my back…

Em started making letters right off the bat, spelling her name, and to my surprise and delight, mine!

Jax was a bit more abstract.  He called his creations Mr. Crazy and Mr. Messy.

After a bit I helped them create shaped structures…

This kept them busy for such a long time, got their creative juices flowing, helped them thinking logically and randomly, and helped their fine motor skills.  Oh, and did I mention, they are tasty, too?  I couldn’t ask more for my crazy kiddos!
