Sweet Mini Marshmallow Rainbow

Any guesses what our favorite St. Patrick's Day theme is this week?


We have lots of rainbow food coloring paint left over, and I hate wasting supplies, so we decided to make a sweet mini marshmallow rainbow.

Materials Needed: mini marshmallow (lots if your kids inhale marshmallows as quickly as my son does), Elmers glue, cardboard half circle (mine was cut from a paper plate), food coloring paint (water + food coloring in rainbow colors... we made ours yesterday)


1. Add some glue to your cardboard.

2. Dip the marshmallow in the first color, turn it color facing up and stick it to the cardboard. It is a little slimy, but that's half the fun! :)

3. Definitely eat some marshmallows as you go... makes the project even sweeter. :)

4. Keep working until you've done as many marshmallow colors as you have room for.

5. Let your project dry and then hang it!!

Do you think we'll find a pot o' gold at the end of this one??

We are also attempting a rainbow carnation science experiment as we speak... no progress yet... I think we might need to add more food coloring? I'll post pictures if it works!!

Happy Weekend!
