We had a fun Saturday “Rainy Day” activity. It was actually snowing! My original intention was to make these Food Castles again, but use mini pie crusts or muffins instead of a cup. But my son had other ideas! So we pulled out the toothpicks and went to town with the fun colored marshmallows. It kept them occupied for almost an hour!
My daughter made a Castle and my son made a Sailboat.
At first they were a little frustrated while trying to figure out how to connect everything. I learned that I needed to back off and let them be creative and they did much better (not complaining or asking for my help). I will have to pull the toothpicks and marshmallows out after they go to bed one of these nights and make my own creation. It definitely looked like fun!
**P.S. If you still want to join in on the Slim Down For Summer Fitness Challenge, I would love to have you along…It is not about lbs or inches, but accountability (or competition, if that is what motivates you;-) )! AND don’t forget about the $50 Moby Wrap Giveaway (ends 4/15)and the other giveaways on the right sidebar!**
