We took the popular building-with-marshmallows-and-toothpicks activity to another level...
First we build snowflake shapes and ate a few marshmallows...
|I think more marshmallows went in his mouth than onto his snowflakes...|
We let them dry for a couple days. Then, we painted our toothpicks white...
|It was such a lovely, quiet morning activity.|
And added glue and sparkles to our marshmallows!
|I love this action shot. Great way to re-purpose styrofoam trays, btw.|
Now we have some of the beautiful snowflakes of winter hanging in our dining room!
|Everett's original snowflake... wish you could see the sparkles!|
|That one in the left corner is Everett's *Building Snowflake*|
|Everett took this picture!|
