Afterschool Library Camp: Final Day of Marshmallows

Our last day started with the book, Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin. Really, no tie-in to the marshmallows. I just knew the kids would enjoy it :) We had 6 kids who were able to attend on Thursday. It was a beautiful day out and boy were they squirel-ly! I'm glad I underplanned the afternoon so we could spend 30 minutes outside. It was too windy to attempt the solar cooked smores, but I have it planned for the summer!

For snack, we made edible sculptures out of marshmallows, PEEPs, frosting, peanut butter, and graham crackers.

Then we finished our Dissolving PEEPs experiment. We took each one out and used our senses (minus tasting!!) to see what exactly had happened to our 2 year old hardened PEEPs. They were amazed and really disgusted by what the tea and soda did to our little birds.

Then we attempted marshmallow shooters. In the future, only paper cups work. Plastic equals uber-fails!! They were cool with it, though, and were excited by the challenge to see if they could make one at home.

Then we went outside and played with chalk, frisbees, hula hoops, and the LEGOs.

We came back inside for a library scavenger hunt. Once all items were found, the child could pick out a book to keep.

We finished by reading another book and talking about all the things we did over the week.
