Happy Town marshmallow people

This week we talked about yes and no behaviors, how to be nice to others during school time and the people in our community who help us stay safe and happy.

I wanted the adventurers to make little people who live in Happy Town.  It took me some thinking time to come up with these simple people..I couldn't decide on what would be best... for the base of the person large gumdrops...potatoes and then I realized that I had some old marshmallows sitting in the craft box.

So this is what we did:

I printed out circles on card-stock for the adventurers to cut out (a little tricky for some).
The markers were used to draw the face and the clothes on the marshmallow. Once the face was drawn I gave everyone a piece of tape to attach the face to the toothpick.

(One of the adventures insisted to use the felt faces we sorted and counted for their person!)

Oh my gosh, those are the cutest little citizens! And so easy! It's amazing what cool stuff you can make without getting too elaborate/expensive/time consuming, etc.
