Good, Clean, Crazy FUN!

At our co-op’s Math Fair earlier this fall, the kids learned toothpicks and mini-marshmallows spell only one thing:


Brooke’s constructed a Widow’s House. 


Brad put wheels on his house.


Dad helped Brian put together a Tower House,


while he ventured out into a little physics/modern art combo himself.


Breanna figured we’d need a little work out after eating the marshmallows, so she put together 20 sets of barbells.


The whole craft cost us $1.09 for a bag of marshmallows, and a little rustle through our baking cabinet to find the toothpicks. What a great, inexpensive bit of fun.

But we couldn’t leave well enough alone. When it was time to clean up, we had to have ourselves a little marshmallow battle.


After all, what better thing can you do with marshmallows with holes in them?

  1. How fun! My kids would love this project! Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I pray you have a blessed Thanksgiving with your family.

  2. We do this same project in 4-H as a team building exercise. I have also seen it done with dry spaghetti (yeah, I guess cooked spaghetti wouldn’t work – lol) and marshmallows. Fun game!

  3. Sorry, but I have to laugh everytime I look at this picture of you with the marshmallows in your mouth – ROFL! Love it!
