Did you know you can make super-easy, adorable marshmallow art with just marshmallows and food coloring pens?
I’ve made a loooooot of marshmallow art. Like a LOT of marshmallow art. For more information all about food writers, check out this post here.
Marshmallow art is a super easy fun project for kids or grown-ups who love to draw. Personalize your marshmallows to match a party theme and serve or have marshmallow art as a party activity.
to make marshmallow art you will need:*
- gourmet writers
- skewers and/or lollipop sticks
*If you can’t find Americolor gourmet writers, as shown, most craft stores carry subsitutes (but I just adore Americolor products). I found a pack of 100 bamboo skewers for about 2 bucks at the drug store. Lollipop sticks are available at the craft store.
how to make marshmallow art:
Step 1. Skewer 1, 2, or 3 marshmallows.
Step 2. Open package of gourmet writers.
Step 3. Draw.
Kids should use caution with the bamboo skewers, as they are sharp. I advise using lollipop sticks for kids.
The stiffer the outside of your marshmallows, the easier to draw on them. If your marshmallows are very soft, you might want to let them sit at room temperature for several hours (or even overnight).
Below is my attempt to recreate Monet’s Water Lilies Painting 1:
Mondrian, composition with yellow, blue and red
Dali, the persistence of memory

what a fantastic idea!!! 🙂 absolutely love it!
This is adorable! I might decorate some marshmallow monsters for a birthday thats close to halloween! So neat!
These are amazingly beautiful. I have a daughter that will draw on anything blank, she would have a field day!!!
I LOVE this! I am going to do this with the neighborhood kids at our Halloween street carnival! Thanks so much for sharing!
Great idea and really cute, but I'm not sure anybody would want to eat anything decorated by 11yo boys. All of them around here seem to be in a gross out phase. On the other hand, decorated marshmallows would make great bug or monster bodies. I'll just have to fugue out heads and legs.
