I know what you all are thinking. We have not even made it through Halloween yet, why are we already sharing Christmas crafts. Well, our first official snowfall just hit us in October. Our fireplace was lit for the first time this season and it was accompanied by hot cocoa with marshmallows.

While digging out our marshmallows, I found an old bag of jumbo marshmallows which were just too big and soft to resist. Marshmallows make wonderful paint stamps and are just fun to paint with because of their soft, bouncy texture.
We started out by making marshmallow snowmen in honor of our snowfall.
Being as family orientated as my daughter is, she wanted to make a mommy snowwoman, a daddy snowman and a baby.
She dipped her marshmallow into white acrylic paint and stamped the marshmallow onto a piece of blue construction paper. She stamped the marshmallows one above the other to form her snowmen and women.
After the paint dried, she used markers and buttons to decorate her snow family. She explained to me that the baby would get one blue button, the mommy would get three red and daddy snowman would get four green.
When she finished with her snow family, she even added a little scenery to her project. It came out beautiful.
Like I said before, marshmallows are fun to paint with, so we just had to squeeze out a couple more crafts.
