Marshmallow construction
All you need is marshmellows and toothpicks! 
Have your children use those fine motor skills  pushing a toothpick into a marshmellow.
What can they build?  A square? A triangle?
Can they spell their name? 
Make a field goal out of toothpicks and "kick" your                                                          marshmallow through for three points. 

Marshmallow Art
Draw a picture on your marshmellow.  Use one marshmellow to draw a head, another to draw a body, and the third to draw lower extremities.  Can you match the body?  Have your group draw different body parts then try to piece them together.

Use your marshmellows as a paintbrush.  Hold the marshmellow as a stamper, holding the marshmellow and dipping one side.  Or work on your child's grasp and push a marshmellow onto the tip of a pencil.
