When you don’t have a lot of extra time, but you want to create special holiday memories with your family, you look for “the easy button”. I saw some cute Valentine Marshmallow Pops on Pinterest from Mommy Gaga and knew that would be something special Madison and I could do in an afternoon…but with a Halloween twist!
To make our Halloween Marshmallow Pops, we used:
- giant marshmallows
- paper straws I found at TJMaxx
- Halloween sprinkles
- candy coating from Hobby Lobby
We melted the candy in the microwave, dipped the marshmallows and decorated to our hearts content!
Seriously SOOO easy!
Madison loves them. I’m not a huge fan on marshmallows unless they’re toasted over a campfire — but the fun was in making them.
Taking time to make memories while you can is important. I sometimes think I can put life off “Just until I finish this big project”.
The problem with that is, there’s always a big project. So, the busier I feel, the harder it is but I HAVE to step away and have some quality time creating little memories. ‘Cause I keep hearing these years are going to fly by and soon I’ll wonder where they went. And I don’t want to wonder where they went. I want to live them as they fly by and know full well what we were doing as they happened!
This year, we froze in a wet tent and made Marshmallow pops and … some other stuff.
What an excellent post! And the paper straws are cute (am going to have to scour our TJ Maxx!) I totally agree – it is hard to step away from whatever your “project” happens to be (work at home, DIY, homemaker, etc) and remember to actively participate in life. I do it all the time – have a list a mile long of memories I want to make and i get so involved in making the list and thinking of what will be that I forget that those items need to be checked off, too. Thanks for being the inspiration today to actually cross at least 1 thing off. 🙂 You’re awesome!
Thank you Christine. I need to make some lists. Maybe that would help me be more organized. LOL
