An open-ended activity that sparks the imagination for kids and adults to enjoy together or by themselves.
This activity is simple and all you need is toothpicks and tiny/
*You can substitute the toothpicks for skewers and then use large marshmallows*
My husband and daughter loved doing this activity together.
They made all sorts of shapes and structures.
This activity uses fine motor skills and problem solving skills. When a structure was standing up on its own they got excited.
We tried using craft sticks in place of toothpicks because I was nervous about my 4-year-old using a sharp ended toothpick but the craft stick did not work as well. Just supervise your young ones and let them know the end is sharp and to be careful of their little fingers if you do use toothpicks.
