Rainy Day Marshmallow Building

Rainbow toothpicks were used of course.

We built a few playground structures for marshmallow people to play on

And a tall tower for marshmallow for monkeys swing on

After we got sick of building structures we made a few simple shapes and then cooked up some rice krispies treats with the leftovers.

Really fun. A little sticky and a yummy result. 
Rating: Four stars!

raw spaghetti noodles and marshmallows would be safer and you could break the noodles for different heights and sizes. add using a little of colored water with food coloring with paint brush for the marshmallows let dry then eat. what a fun treat that would be.

nice photography with that last shot! my boys would love this activity!

This is such a cute idea! Next time I babysit, this is definitely going to be the craft activity. It reminds me of a science project I did in elementary school…

What a great idea! Lady, you are mad smart, and boy does that look like fun. I am saving this idea in my brain storage for future reference.

Alicia, that app sounds like so much fun! I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the tip!

Lori, that is so funny you've used this in school with older kids. It's quite challenging for any age!

i like your blog! you used to live in hoboken? i live here now and LOVE it! 🙂

This is now one of my favorite activities. So happy your guy had so much fun with it. His structures are fantastic. Oh and love the addition of the colored toothpicks. We must try it! Jen from Classic Play

Absolutely love this idea. Definitely picking up toothpicks and mini marshmallows the next time I go to the grocery store!

FUN!! Reminds me of the app I had on my Android called 'Spaghetti Marshmallows'. Premise of the game is to build structures out of a limited supply of raw spaghetti noodles and marshmallows to get a marshmallow through a ring. Hours of fun!

This is too cute. Your photos are great and I'm definitely trying this with my 2-year old!

I remember making these at school when I was a child and getting all nervous that I wouldn't get to eat any. Lol. I forgot how fun this was. Happy day!PS- I'm hosting my first GIVEAWAY on my blog! Please come and see!X

Ah, that looks so fun! Thanks for the idea! I may have to try some with my little first graders!Playing It Cooley

I have used this idea often as an after-school project specialist–it is fun to see some tough inner-city 12 year-old boys and girls really get into this.

Hehe cute idea!Reminds me of my first week in uni, we had to see who could build the biggest structure out of wine gums and dry spaghetti! The first day was fun, the next two were just infuriating!
