- 15 to 20 minutes
- Dark paper
- White glue
- Miniature marshmallows
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.
- 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.
