Yesterday was my son's classroom Christmas party. One of the activities was a marshmallow toss. The kids were supposed to toss marshmallows into a bucket to earn points. Well, that little activity went sadly awry. The kids decided that marshmallows would make much better snow balls.
They whipped the sugary white things at each other, instead of into the buckets. Pretty soon, the entire class was in a marshmallow frenzy. There was no stopping them.
The marshmallow fight lasted several minutes. When they were finished, they had satisfied grins on their faces.
My son had this to say about it: "What do you expect, Mama? There's no snow in Georgia for a real snow ball fight, so marshmallows were the next best thing!"
