In light of recent events, I have been trying very hard to play with my babies more, because life is unpredictable. I am trying to spend less time on the computer, and more time on the floor with blocks and crayons. Also with the holiday season we have been super busy! I'm sure everyone else has too.
I have been busy and preoccupied, and Sister Bear keeps bugging me to do projects. I try to do one "project" a day. So the other night I found a quick easy project via Pintrest. Marshmallow Snowman! It was free and super easy project with virtually no mess! Who can beat that? Here is where I found the original idea.
Here we go!
- Mini Marshmallows
- Pretzel sticks
- construction paper ( I used blue and white)
- Glue stick
- A pen

Once we outlined him, we filled him in too! We talked about the colors, what happens to snow when it melts, what snow taste like, and how yummy marshmallows are. And we counted marshmallows as went. I try to make our projects educational, but sometimes we just like to have fun!
Next, we glued down 2 pretzel sticks for the snowman's arms. I originally was going to cut out a hat from black paper, along with buttons, eyes and a mouth. But Sister Bear decide she didn't want a hat, and she wanted him to be made with all marshmallows. So that's what we did. I then licked a marshmallow and use it like a stamp to make " snowflakes" in the air. Sorry no picture of this part :-(
So this is the finished product! It was a fun, free, quick and virtually mess-free project!
