Marshmallow Fight

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!"

Of course!

    1. Yes! There are many children in this world who are not so lucky.

  3. I love this story for so many reasons. First, because I have a 2-year-old, and no matter what kind of toy he's playing with, somehow it always ends up being more fun to throw it. And second, because I live in Georgia, and in my newest WiP, I invented a slushie stand called Snow in Georgia exactly because of the lack of snow. I'm originally from Connecticut, and I really miss a good blizzard!

    1. I miss a good blizzard, too. And as strange as it seems, I miss shoveling the white stuff!

  4. Hi, dear Sherry!

    Bubba's latest adventure reminds me of the John Belushi food fight scene in Animal House. If that's the worst mischief your son ever gets into you can be very thankful. :)

    It was refreshingly cool here in Central Florida today and I hope it was pleasantly cool for you guys way up north in Atlanta.

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear Sherry, and thank you again for the kind words on SDMM. So glad we got together this year!

    1. I'm afraid as the boy gets older, he's going to get into a lot more mischief. I hope I'm wrong!

      It's chilly here in the north. ;-) A freezing 23 degrees. But I'm not complaining. As a native Ohioan, I like it a little colder this time of year!

  6. Leave it to Bubba to find snow somewhere. I can just imagine marshmallows flying everywhere!

    1. At least marshmallows don't hurt as much when they hit you!

  8. Marshmallows are much safer! Icy snowballs are downright dangerous. let me tell you. ;)

  9. Who's brilliant idea was this? Marshmallow throw? Yeah, that wasn't going to go as planned.

    1. I don't know, but it wouldn't surprise me if my son was somehow behind it. ;-)

  10. LOL. A marshmallow fight sounds a lot less painful than a snowball fight, at the very least! (I'm assuming, anyway. I've never experienced snow, haha.)

    1. You've never experienced snow? Girlfriend, you need to get yourself up north, ASAP!

  11. In their defense, snowballs are painful and cold and wet while marshmallows are soft and squishy. I prefer my marshmallows with melted chocolate on a stick, but to each their own.

    1. I like your version of how to deal with marshmallows. But I'm glad nobody got hurt throwing them.

  12. Haha... kids are so inventive when they aren't able to have what they really want. Personally I would much prefer marshmellows over snow ♡
