When you are hosting a party for young children, it can be helpful to have an activity or project for the children to do to keep them entertained. You do not have to buy a pre-made project at a store. Instead, you can put together an activity using materials that you may have lying around your house. For example, you can create an activity making whimsical marshmallow lollipop figures that the kids can put together and eat.

Insert a jumbo marshmallow onto a lollipop stick. You can buy jumbo marshmallows in a wide variety of colours from any supermarket.
Attach miniature marshmallows onto the jumbo marshmallow to create a creature. Snip off a piece of the miniature marshmallow using kitchen shears, and then snip off a small piece from the jumbo marshmallow. Press the two snipped areas together. The snipping will open up the marshmallows and will act like glue to seal the two marshmallows together. Repeat to create a dynamic marshmallow figure.
Pour 1/4 cup of semisweet chocolate chips into a saucepan, and heat it over low heat until the chips melt. Stir occasionally with a spoon to prevent scorching.
Dip the end of a toothpick into the melted chocolate and use the dipped toothpick to add detailing onto the marshmallow figure. Include features like eyes, fingers, clothing or hair.
Allow the chocolate to cool for 15 minutes before displaying or eating the marshmallow lollipop figure.
