Marshmallow Mansions

Marshmallow + Toothpicks

Do marshmallows get hard in your cupboard no matter what you do??
I get serious about this. 
My last bag of marshmallows was twisty tied, 
then clothes pinned, 
then double bagged!

Maybe next time I will double tie, clothespin and bag... Do you think that would work?
I am doubtful!

Good thing we are resourceful and come up with some other interesting things to do with marshmallows... 

So we built some marshmallow houses...

 And Marshmallow Fairy Mansions...

 We talked about letter building and spelling... Great foresight here.. How many toothpicks do you need to make an A, how many marshmallows? 

It was interesting to see how M1 worked hard (I swear I almost saw steam on this one!) to think ahead to how many she would need!

Other ways to play:
Here we used marshmallows (that were hard) in 

The Outlaw Mom Made Homemade Marshmallow (they are beautiful)

The Decorated Cookie has some Fun ideas for Marshmallows on a Stick

Do you have any great ideas for our hardened marshmallows??

  1. I love the idea of learning letters with the marshmallows and toothpicks! And btw, no matter what we do as well, our marshmallows get hard :-) Maybe a ziploc bag? Thanks for linking to our homemade marshmallows!
