Anyway, she posted about marshmallow shamrocks that she crafted with her son. Because I wanted to do this with Timothy, I tried my best to figure out how I could get somewhere, anywhere to get colored mini marshmallows today. I can't wait to do a fun project - I have to do it as soon as I see the idea. But with both boys sick and I'm not the best looking thing today, I decided the craft would have to wait.
Then I remembered that I had some strawberry marshmallows in the pantry and decided to do a heart. Yes, I know - Valentine's Day was last month. I'm a month late. So what? We had a good time! I cut the enormous marshmallows in half and had Timothy and Asher glue them on to a heart shape that I drew on a piece of construction paper. No big deal and they loved it!
Here's Asher's heart - and NO, I didn't rearrange all of the hearts. He actually did a really good job on his own! :)
Here's Timothy's heart:
I had him color inside the heart that I drew first. Then we put the 'smellas' on. :)
I was trying to think of a way to do the shamrock craft today and remembered that I had a bag of generic fruit loops in my pantry that have been there since last fall. And I remembered that they are rainbow colored. SCORE!! So that's what we did!
Here's Timothy mid-way through. He's very fastidious about putting the fruit loops on. His hands are in the air because he got some glue on them and he's rubbing his hands together.
I love to watch his little hands at work. He's so careful.
Finished product! He's so proud and had a good time.
Here's a better shot. I promised him that tomorrow we'd make rainbows with those same fruit loops. He helped me make one tonight - his will be fantastic I'm sure!
