Marshmallow Magic

Time

  • 15 to 20 minutes

Materials

  • Dark paper
  • White glue
  • Saucer
  • Miniature marshmallows

Directions

The stark contrast of black and white makes the use of space all the more obvious to the developing artist. Pour a small amount of glue into a saucer and show your child how to dip a marshmallow in and stick it in patterns to the dark paper. Young children are apt to put them all in one spot, and that is fine.

Extensions

  • Make little snowmen by gluing the marshmallows 3 high.
  • Take turns gluing marshmallows in a long line.
  • Go just around the edges of the paper with marshmallows.
