Today I'm participating in the Snowman Blog Hop celebrating the first anniversary of Scrapbooking SOS! If you're hopping along, you should have arrived here from Sue in CT.
Recently two things happened on the same day: I noticed that we had a bag of 13 large marshmallows that were on the verge of getting stale; and Trevor had friends coming over for a playdate. Naturally, in my world this meant a project.
I dug around in the pantry and came up with all sorts of odds and ends. Far more candy enters this house than we could ever possibly eat (via a ridiculous number of holiday and birthday party goodie bags), so there's always plenty to choose from when we need it for an edible craft. I found a promising assortment- Junior Mints, Nerds, Mike and Ikes, fruit leather, chocolate chips, M&Ms, Hershey kisses, and lollipops. I put some of each on each plate, along with three marshmallows and a wooden skewer.
All the kids had really creative ideas. It was so cool to see them working. Tyler finished fairly quickly, while Trevor and Kayla pondered different options, removed items and changed them, and dug through the bags of extra candy looking for inspiration.
Here's what we made. On the left is Tyler's (age 6) and the one on the right is Trevor's (age 5).
