I’m happy to be a part of this fun 30 day event as summer is here and we’re ready to get crafty. We’re building blocks with marshmallows and straws today, making it easier for little hands to create and a little less pokey than toothpicks. And our straws are bendable, making for super fun creations.

Supplies for Marshmallow Building Blocks:

  • large marshmallows
  • bendable straws
  • scissors

Cut each of your straws in half with your scissors, then just start to build. Try twisting your straw into the marshmallow to help it go in and through at least half way. Here’s my son’s creation. It’s a man lifting dumbbell weights! So funny!

We’ve had fun with these building blocks in our Building Block Birthday Party. Or they’re great for a crafty summer day. Enjoy!
