Let the Christmas crafting continue. Last week we made Christmas themed Rice Krispies treats. I needed marshmallows for making these. They were luckily on sale at the grocery store that day & I bought far more marshmallow than any household needs.

While making our treats, I noticed that Mai really enjoyed playing with them. We had enough of them, so let’s play.

Today, it was Mai & Mommy’s marshmallow crafting day. Lately, Mai has been doing a lot of painting. She asks me almost every day. Today would be no different. “Paint, mama! Paint! Paint!”. Painting it is! We could use the marshmallows to paint with, ala pointillism style. My thoughts were to cut out a Christmas tree & then use the marshmallows to dot on the ornaments with paint.

Here is what you will need..

Construction paper- green, yellow, white, red & brown


Non Toxic Paint -I whipped up our usual batch of Cool Whip paints 

Glue Stick



Draw the outline of the Christmas tree.


Cut out around the outline of the tree.


Cut out a rectangle for the stump, an oval for tree skirt & a star for the top of the tree.


Loosely tape tree to a scrap piece of paper temporarily & then show your child how to use the marshmallow to stamp on the paint.


Let your toddler paint their masterpiece.

After finishing your tree, let it dry & glue to a fresh piece of construction paper, with the stump, tree skirt & star.

I had as much fun with this as she did. This was a fun & easy project for any age.

The marshmallow fun didn’t stop there. We needed a sweet treat after all that painting.

Peanut Butter Melting Snowman Smores



Graham crackers

Peanut butter

Peanut butter cup minis

M&M minis

Writing icing

Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Break graham crackers into double square squares. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on to the cracker. Place one marshmallow on each square. Place in the oven. Bake until marshmallow is almost melted. Do not let burn. Remove from the oven & lightly flatten the marshmallow with a spatula. Let cool for about 2 minutes. Place a peanut butter cup on the still warm marshmallow, where you would like your hat to be. It will melt slightly. Put in the fridge for a few minutes to let the hat cool & set. Remove from the fridge & add two chocolate M&M mini for eyes. Use orange writing icing to make a carrot nose & use black or brown icing to dot on the mouth. Let cool & enjoy.

These are delicious. The peanut butter offers a wonderful twist. I know someone that agrees.
