Marshmallows & Toothpicks


In an effort to keep up our skills during the summer, we complete many projects that are fun and have a purpose. Both girls can always benefit from any fine motor activity and any handwriting activity is "so boring."

E1 and E2 LOVE to create and build.  A box of toothpicks and mini marshmallows can provide hours of fun and work those finger muscles!

For beginners, buy normal size marshmallows and/or jumbo marshmallows. A friend of mine uses raw spaghetti noodles and gum drops to make the projects more challenging. Oh, the possibilities!

E2 created letters while E1 built 3D shapes. Language arts, math, and fine motor skills all in one lesson- #winning
