First I used cookie icing to glue mini M&Ms to the tops of the marshmallows. In retrospect, I probably should have used regular M&Ms, but I had the minis on hand. (And since hindsight is 20/20, I also should have used something in a lighter color...the yellow wafers weren't enough to completely cover the red & green M&Ms).
I then put them on lollipop sticks, dipped them into the melted yellow candy wafers, and using the same trick as I did last year for the pretzel light sabers, stuck them in the egg carton to dry.
Using these special pens, I tried my best to draw faces on the little guys. As you will see below, I'm no artist. But thankfully, my almost 6 year old didn't care. The expressions reminded me of one of those magnets....you know, the kind with all the faces, and it also has a small magnetic frame??? they say something at the top to the effect of "Today I'm feeling...." and then you put the frame over your mood. Anyone know what I'm talking about? I haven't seen one in awhile, so maybe not. Anyway, if we made up a magnet, here's some of the faces that would appear......
Today I'm feeling.....
Bonus - the marshmallow head made for a cute display on the party table!
Please note: The "scared" face can also double as the "I'm on fire!" face!
More Lego party madness on the way!!
