I did this activity in a summer camp program that I run. The camp is for ages 5-17 and often times it’s hard to find a group activity that everyone enjoys. This Marshmallow building activity was a big hit with everyone. It was easy enough for the little kids and the big kids really got into creating architectural structures. It was a great activity.
Supplies: Mini Marshmallows you can use white and colored (get extra because the kids will eat them while they are creating), tooth picks, paper plates
I worked with a group of 40 kids. I purchased 8 bags of marshmallows and had about 900 toothpicks. They used almost everything.
Step 1: Give each child a paper plate to build on.
Step 2: Hand out the marshmallows and toothpicks and let them create.
