Bedtime is already starting to slip a bit later with our summer schedule. We like to do one quiet activity in the late afternoon, something simple yet fun. We spotted this idea for using marshmallows as building blocks and knew we had to give it a try right away.
You just need to get a bag of large marshmallows and some bendable straws. Cut the straws in half, then start building using the marshmallows as connectors for the straws. It's simple and utilizes things you've got in the pantry already. Clean up is simple, too - make s'mores out of the marshmallows and save the cut straws for the next time the kids want to do this activity again.
