Do you have a child who is curious about stars? Here is a great activity to teach them about the stars by creating (an edible) big dipper!
Supplies: mini marshmallows, toothpicks, black paper, chalk or marker.
Step 1: Gather marshmallows and toothpicks in a pile to have them available.
Step 2: Place two toothpicks through the first marshmallow and build out to make a square.
Step 3: Choose one corner to add the handle. Connect a few more toothpicks and marshmallows to lengthen the tail.
Step 4: Write “Big Dipper” to the black paper. Done! (Clean-up, have a marshmallow treat!)
