Building with Marshmallows

By Devany LeDrew | Labels: ,
Our preschooler has a renewed interest in building and construction. I point all the credit for her new passion to Korxx blocks for giving her the confidence she needed about her engineering skills! For this invitation I presented her with every size and shape of marshmallow we could find and let her imagination do the rest.

We used jumbo, regular, flat, mini, and tiny marshmallows for this activity. E sorted them by size first.

Next she used the toothpicks provided to construct sculptures. This was excellent experience in experimenting with balance, structure, and form.

She made a snowman. He is holding an umbrella since it was a sunny summer day. We don't want him to melt too quickly!

Next she made a train for her toddler brother D. He is obsessed with trains but he was sleeping while we played.

This will be a regular invitation to create during our homeschool preschool this fall! The possibilities are endless and the variety of marshmallows made it extra fun.
