Marshmallow Taffy--Easy and Fun
Here's a rainy day activity for kids of all ages. Just expect a mess so you aren't upset. Have your child take two marshmallows and smush them together. Then, have them press their pointer finger and thumb together to make pinchers on each hand. Hold the marshmallows firmly in one pincher, and without leting go, grab, pull and twist part of the marshmallow ninety degrees with the other hand's pincher . Pull out as far as you can without tearing it into two parts. Repeat for about ten minutes, alternating hands, until the marshmallows turn into smooth, delicious vanilla taffy. Eat and repeat!
