August celebrates National Toasted Marshmallow Day and this craft is a great choice to celebrate the day. This craft is a take on Mr. Potato Head, but is Mr. Marshmallow Head and oh so much more yummy! Kraftykid’s template has hats, scarf, and eye accessories to dress your marshmallow in style. Just have children draw a face of their choice for added fun. The only white mess they’ll have on their fingers, will be some glue. Marshmallows without the sugar rush!
August 1 is National Spiderman Day, so let’s make a spider to celebrate. This spider is great for preschoolers because he knows how to count to eight, one for each leg. He also likes to eat cupcakes too! Yum, this spider has good taste, doesn’t he?

- Print the Kraftykid Seder template and cut out the circles to be used inside your muffins cups: Charoset, Bitter herbs, Greens, Egg and Shankbone.
- Glue the five cups around the perimeter of your plate using a small dab of white craft glue.
- Once the glue has set and the cups are securely fastened to the plate, glue your five circles inside the cups.
- Use glitter and stickers for decoration, if desired.
- If your plate is small, glue the cups onto the rim of the plate to spread things out and leave you more surface to decorate.
- When you’re done with the glitter, shake the excess directly into the garbage can to avoid a big, sparkly mess
