Marshmallow Straw Structures

It’s time for a super simple craft for the kids… Marshmallow Straw Structures! Not only is this a great activity for all, it can help develop math skills, problem solving, and small motor skills. And if you use straws that are bendable, it makes for even more fabulous creations!

Marshmallow Straw Structure Supplies

1. Cut your straws in half, thirds, or fourths with your scissors

2. Attach a marshmallow to one end of your straw. And keep adding straws and marshmallows to create your structure!

TIP: twist your straw into the marshmallow to help it go in and through at least half way.

Such an amazing idea! Will definitely try it for my ten-year-old sister’s birthday which is pretty soon. Thanks for sharing!
