Building with Marshmallows and Toothpicks {Boredom Buster}

This is by no means a new ideas, but it is still well-loved among my children!

It is inexpensive, builds fine-motor skills, lets the creative juices flow and is yummy!

So grab a bag of mini-marshmallows ($1) and a box of toothpicks ($1), and let your kids go to town building, creating and snacking!

Remember to join in the fun and build something too!  Your kids will love the interaction and you might find an inner architect is hiding somewhere in there :)

What activities are you doing with your kids to help bust the mid-summer boredom?

  1. I don't have kids but I want to try this out with my boyfriend just for fun. I'll use anything as an excuse to spend more time with him and this seems pretty fun!
