Marshmallow and Toothpick Structures

If I don't keep little hands busy they seem to get into trouble.  I happened across a pin that showed kids making shapes with marshmallows and toothpicks.  Easy and cheap!  My kind of activity.

Princess had fun making snowmen.

Together we made a cube to put the extra marshmallows in.

Finally, Princess just dumped all of the marshmallows onto the plate to make an edible mountain.

It was a great fine motor activity (not to mention tasty!).  I really like the idea from Home School Escapade to show them shapes to try to create with the marshmallows and toothpicks.
