Create an Amazing Marshmallow Igloo Craft for Children
All the material that we need is :
- Foam plates
- Foam bowls
- Glue or edible icing if you prefer
- Package of mini marshmallows
- Popsicle stick
- Hot glue gun and hot glue
- Xacto knife
- Toilet paper oil
Directions of Making Marshmallows Igloo Craft
Cut the foam bowl from the edge so there will be no edge in the foam bowl. Cut a toilet paper roll in 2 – 3-inch pieces with a knife ( Xacto ). All you need is to slice each of those pieces in a half. And at this point, you will have mini arches.
Trace the foam shaped dome against the hole of foam bowl. And then just cut it out. Now you have to slice the arches into the bowl and place it with hot glue. Remember, before starting this craft put your hot gun on so you can not waste any time in heating the gun. Here you have the entrance of the igloo.
Place the glue with a hot glue gun on the bottom side of the foam plate.
Here the fun part just came. And we all know it’s marshmallows. Just begin this by layering some glue on the top of the foam with a stick. And remember to set a rule while making this that the kid does not eat so many marshmallows as they build an igloo craft. They will not eat all the marshmallows at once. They are allowed to take one marshmallow after covering one row. This trick energizes them and they will do it faster.
In the next step, you have to use a stick to add glue on the bottom line of the bowl and cover its edges. Then tick marshmallows one by one until the entire bowl was covered with the row of horizontal with marshmallows.
Continuing adding marshmallows. Remember you have to stop when the entire area is covered. And here you have to marshmallow igloo craft. If you want to look it more natural. Take a toothpick and add some cartoonish pictures of people and kids on it. Place those toothpicks on the front of the entrance of the igloo. Place some snowy animals on the toothpick and place it from or right or left corner of the igloo.
Gather some of your child’s friends while making this igloo craft and make your children more expressing. Because in front of friends children open faster.
