We have had a lot of snow here and whenever I think of snow and winter can’t help but think of a nice warm cup of hot cocoa with lots of yummy marshmallows. So that is exactly what we made for our craft project with our art group.
I cut out a mug shape for each child.
First, they decorated their mugs with stickers, markers and our new favorite Crayola Slick Stix.
Next, they painted in the hot chocolate with brown paint. I added some cocoa powder to it, but I don’t think it was enough because it didn’t smell chocolaty to me at all.
Finally and maybe the best part was gluing on the mini marshmallows. I had a bag that had fallen all over the floor and was also kind of stale anyway so I put it away to use for an art/crafting project just like this.
They also glued the mug to a piece of construction paper (color of their choice) and added some steam coming from the cup.
