In preparation for Kate's three-week electronic fast, I came up with some projects for us to do together. This one came from a combination of two things--toothpick-and-marshmallow creations at Cub Scout day camp, and an idea from Color Me Katie. Marshmallows, toothpicks, food coloring, and brand-new clean paintbrushes.
It can be hard to get a good thin line. The brushes soak up a lot of food coloring, and release it rather blotchily. Takes some practice.
My collection of creatures.
It's a fun activity (slightly messy). Kate did eat a couple of the marshmallows--the intense concentration of food coloring makes for some exciting mouth-staining.
