Confessions: Taste the Rainbow
Who says you can’t play with your food?
With St. Patrick’s Day rapidly approaching, these Fruit Loop Marshmallow Rainbows are a fun craft to do with your little ones. I am not going to pretend these are healthy, but they are great for developing fine motor skills, the kids love them, and they are super easy to do. So 3 out of 4 ain’t bad. It’s a holiday ffs embrace a theme.
This is literally the easiest craft ever. I presorted a box of Fruit Loops to streamline this (see picture below). To make these, you will need Fruit Loops, large marshmallows, and white pipe cleaners or chenille stems. I used white so that the color wouldn’t distract from the color of the Fruit Loops, but you could use other colors too.
First, stick one end into a large marshmallow. The large marshmallow helps the pipe cleaner stand upright, making it easier for little ones to string on the Fruit Loops. If it keeps falling over, try wetting the bottom of the marshmallow a little to get it to stick.
Then let your kids string on the Fruit Loops. Not only can they practice stringing them, but you can also go over your colors. You can either encourage your child to do the colors in order or just have fun with it. Once they are done, top it off with another marshmallow and bend it into shape. They are so cute! Fruit Loop Marshmallow Rainbows are great to do for nursery, preschool or school classes too. I brought them as a special treat for my son’s class.
Let me know how these turn out for you <3
