Painting With Marshmallows Activity


Have you ever painted with marshmallows?  If not, you have to try it!  It is so much fun and offers multiple educational benefits.

You will need: marshmallows (large and/or mini); paper (we used this); paper plates; paint (we used these); and toothpicks (optional).

1.  Squirt paint into small piles onto the paper plates.

2.  Place marshmallows next to the paint piles.

3.  Encourage your child(ren) to use their senses to describe the marshmallows (How do they feel?  How do they smell? etc.)

4.  Have your child(ren) paint with the marshmallows (they can use toothpicks or small sticks if they don’t like the feeling of the marshmallows).  Allow them to use their creativity to choose how they wish to paint with the marshmallows.

5.  Remind your child(ren) there are no mistakes in art and have fun!
