What’s better on a chilly winter day than a cup of hot chocolate with some delicious, fluffy marshmallows?
. . . maybe a cup of hot chocolate plus a heaping spoonful of sensory arts & crafts play!
And, did you know that there are so many great (and secretly educational) activities you can do with marshmallows! Here are a few "sweet" ones:
* If you have 3 marshmallows and someone gives you 3 more, how many do you have?
* If you have 5 marshmallows and eat 2, how many do you have left?
* Place a handful of marshmallows on the table and figure out how many each person can have. Is there an even number? How do you make it fair if there are extra marshmallows left over?
If you don’t have hot chocolate or marshmallows on hand, here is a free printable to tide you over until that next grocery run. Be sure to color in the mug with a "super-cool" design, using markers or crayons. Enjoy!
