Perfect "keep the kids busy" Activity

I saw a post somewhere on the internet about doing this activity. I wish I could remember where I saw it because I would keep going to that blog, but this is the greatest activity to keep kids busy. My 7 year old son and his friends will work on building these creations for hours and my daughter, who is not quite three, is even entertained trying to figure out how her brother is doing this. All it takes is a bunch of toothpicks and marshmallows. Both things are cheap and easy to store. Show kids how to use them to make triangles and squares and let them go. If you are doing this activity with younger kids, you will need to supervise some because the toothpicks are kind of sharp.
