Crafting with the cousins!

Today we had special visitors today, Cousin Matthew and Cousin Spencer came up to visit. The kids had so much fun running around, jumping on the trampoline, and playing dress up (pirates and swords and stuff, ok there was a little Barbie too). At the very end we decided to make our spooky marshmallow mummies. This was just a little sugar chaser to all the Halloween candy. The recipe is posted below.

Marshmallow Mummies
18 large marshmallows
6 thin pretzel sticks (2 3/4 inch)
1 box fruit by the foot
black decorating gel

Thread 3 marshmallows onto each pretzel stick. Unwrap fruit snacks (do not unroll) and cut rolls in half horizontally to make 12 rolls of long strips. Unroll strips and remove paper.
Wrap fruit around marshmallow, leaving a small amount uncovered for the eyes. Add dots for eyes with the decorating gel. Enjoy!
