Hazel had so much fun painting with marshmallows!

We had some extra marshmallows after buying a few packages on sale, so I decided to have Hazel do some painting with them.

She loved dipping the marshmallows in the paint, mixing colors on the construction paper and also making marshmallow prints all over.

To make it easier for older kiddos, you can place some wooden sticks into the marshmallow like a handle. You can also let them paint with chocolate pudding, making it completely edible.

So simple, so many options and super engaging. Check out the fun books, recipes and other painting ideas below!
