Got colored marshmallows? Here's an activity for ya!

My kids made these pages for St. Patrick's Day. It was such an easy, fun activity!
You can do this little project with your kids while they're home over the summer! If you're like me, you're constantly looking for something cool to keep them busy!
 First, print this page below:

Next, grab your colored marshmallows.
Finally, you can do one of two things.
1. Use scissors to cut each mallow in half (or tear them) and stick them to page.
2. Let your kids bite the ends off each marshmallow & stick the remaining piece to the page. This is what we did, but I have to warn ya... that was a LOT of sugar they took in!

It ended up being a pretty fun project, though! You could do this with just about any picture! THIS is one of my favorite sites to go to find printable coloring pages! Have fun!

That is so wonderful! I would LOVE for you to come link this up in my new linky called Homescholing on the Cheap! It isn't just for people who homeschool but for ideas such as this that is cheap for kids to do and something with which they can learn & grow. This is perfect for the linky.

It is new every Thursday but the link stays up all week. Hope you stop in and share!

THanks, Kelli
