Fold the straw in half and use it like chopsticks 
to pick up the marshmallows. This is easier for preschoolers.

Marshmallows make great sensory games for children.

How to play Sensory Marshmallow Game

  • Open up a bag of mini-marshmallows and spread them in the center of a cloth covered table. Give every kid a cup and a straw. (The teenage counselors liked it too.)

  • Start with a stop-watch to increase the excitement. Let the Marshmallow Games begin!  Ready, Set, Go!  It is a race to see who can suck up the most marshmallows and place them in their cup.  No hands allowed. Suck and hold until you drop into the cup.

  • I quickly realized no stop-watch was needed and let them play until all marshmallows were gone. We counted who had the most.  The winner got stickers and candy and everyone else got to eat the marshmallows!

And, I got a second to breathe.  Aren't marshmallows fun?
