Marshmallow and toothpick sculptures

This has been on my mind since I read about it on The Artful Parent.
Defne was quite excited to see as I was setting the table for her: a big packet of marshmallows and a box of toothpicks. "What are these for?" she asked. I told her that these are for making sculptures. First I showed her a small example, then she had a go.

She absolutely loved it and wanted to show it to her friends and teachers at her preschool today.
Happily shared with Red Ted Art's Kids Get Crafty, Nurturestore's Play Academy , Childhood 101's We Play, Quirky Mamma's Playtime , Homeschool Creations Preschool Corner, ABC and 123's Show and Tell link ups.


  1. Brilliant! But what I want to know, is "How did you stop them from eating the marshmallows"... my son would have been chomping away :-0

  3. Maggy, would you believe that it was the first time she tasted marshmallows :)She ate two I guess, but wasn't very impressed, which is good :))

  4. Mine would have eaten them all too! And probably requested hot chocolate to go with them.
