As usual, I just let the kids do whatever with them. I showed them how to connect them, but then they started creating simple "pictutres"
Once that was mastered, they chose to create all kinds of things.
I didn't think this would keep them as busy as it did. They spent easily an hour at this.
And before long, they had...
...lots of toothpick and marshmellow creations. I can't remember what everything was, but as long as they were happy and entertained, it didn't much matter! :) Another simple and easy "project" in the books!
