On the hunt for a fun, thrifty boredum-buster for the kids??  It’s time for a Marshmallow House Craft!

This idea comes from my friend Kristee, and my boys loooove making their marshmallow houses!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 Bag of Mini Marshmallows
  • 1 Pkg. of Flat-end Toothpicks

What You’ll Do:

Begin by attaching a marshmallow to each end of a toothpick… then let your creativity take over!

Pause… it’s time for a sample break!

Now back to work…

There you have it… it’s a marshmallow-house-igloo-dome-like contraption!

    Excited for this project! My son has the optional school assignment to make a project using 100 of any material of choice for the 100th day of school! We’re going to use 100 marshmellows and 100 toothpicks. His project will go on display for all to see ;)

    When I taught sixth grade, we would do a similar project using toothpicks and Mike & Ikes when we were learning about polygons. It helped the kids to be able to build all the shapes themselves!

    When I showed kids this project they went bonkers and wanted to to it right away. Your whole site is loaded with great ideas for kids entertainment. Kids are literally glued to your site.
