This is similar to our Gumdrop Sculptures activity, except instead of standing the sculptures up on their own, we just made little dumbbells by sticking one mini-marshmallow on each end of a toothpick and then arranging them onto a paper plate.
You could glue them down if you wanted, but Jane preferred designing, eating …
and re-designing her snowflakes over and over.
An older child would easily be able to thread mini or regular-sized marshmallows onto bamboo skewers to make actual snowflake structures.
This would be a great ornament idea, too!
