Sometimes it’s challenging coming up with an activity for various ages especially when your brain feels foggy like mine does too often. I blame it on raising three children and homeschooling! Anyway, my kids did this activity at church and it looked so fun, when they started saying “I’m bored”  I thought we should try it at home. We only needed a few inexpensive items:

The idea is to use the pretzels and marshmallows as “tinker toys” and build things with them. Of course, there was the occasional marshmallow or marshmallows stuffed in the mouth. However we did come up with some
creations.
