This is a very easy art method to use with your children. We simply squirted out blobs of different colored tempera paint onto foam plates and dot-painted with marshmallows.
You can use mini, regular-sized or jumbo ones. You can even find novelty-shaped marshmallows during the holidays.
Just be prepared to let your kids eat a few marshmallows on the side!
My youngest daughter enjoyed making an abstract picture.
