Marshmallow igloos (!)

Discussion in 'Primary' started by whodbeateacher, Jan 11, 2012.

  1. Unashamedly stealing ideas from fruitloop on here I promised my Year 2s that we'd make marshmallow igloos as part of their polar regions topic. They are all desperately excited however I'm now regretting it as I think it's going to cost me an arm and a leg (no school money, don't ask!).
    Anyone done this with anything else (cheaper!)? I thought of using polystyrene foam packing that comes in chips only to find that the ideal cylindrical ones are biodegradable and disintegrate when near water (or glue)!
    Help. I daren't disappoint them....
  2. Yes, that's my plan. ASDA do mini white ones for 97p a bag, plus half an orange as a base and icing sugar 'glue'.
    They are so excited bless them... can't disappoint! Just hope they are not expecting huge ones!

    LOL I was thinking more satsuma/clementine size!

    I might have to do this when I do a week of habitats (science and art/dt week!).

    Go ahead and steal! I used mini marshmallows and we stopped for regular chocolate breaks in the form of chocolate buttons!
