Marshmallow Engineering

7-10 year olds | two hours

This low-maintenance craft only requires marshmallows and toothpicks and a little encouragement. Kids will take this craft and run with it, so be prepared to be wowed by their creations.

What You'll Need

  • toothpicks
  • mini marshmallows


1. Stick a marshmallow on either end of a toothpick.
2. Now stick more toothpicks on these marshmallow-covered ends.
3. Continue building on a flat surface.

Helpful Tips:

- Triangles are good for supporting structures, so don’t stick with just rectangles.
- For stronger structures, double up on toothpicks.
