Marshmallow Guy Lunchbox Notes

I love leaving lunchbox notes for my kindergartner.  At first I would write things like "I love you!" and "I miss you!"  on his napkins and big draw hearts and happy faces, but then he informed me that those notes were "a little embarrassing."  So I had to get creative. When sentimentality fails, silliness is almost always a fine substitute. Now I draw robots and aliens on his napkins and write things like, "Dude! Have a fun day!" 

And then this morning I looked in my pantry and saw my cake decorating supplies and thought it would be fun to make a Marshmallow Guy deliver a lunchbox note today. He came out so cute, I think I'll have to make more with different expressions and messages. Here's how I did it!

What you'll need

  • Marshmallow
  • Edible food color markers
  • Pen or marker
  • Thick paper or cardstock
  • Toothpick
  • Tape

How to make it

  1. food markers on marshmallow

    Draw a face onto the marshmallow using edible food color markers (Do NOT use regular markers for this! Edible writers can be found in the cake decorating aisle of many craft stores). This guy looks scared, with big eyes, high-arched eyebrows and a wide open mouth.

  2. back of talk bubble

    Cut out a talk bubble shape out of the thick paper or cardstock and write a message on it using a regular pen or marker. On this one I wrote, "AAAAHH! Don't eat me!"

    Use a small piece of tape to stick a toothpick to the back of the talk bubble, leaving about a 1/4" of toothpick sticking out.

  3. Marshmallow guy lunch note

    Push the toothpick talk bubble into the side of the marshmallow near the drawing of the mouth.

    Put Marshmallow Guy in a food-safe baggie (not pictured) and let him hang out in your kid's lunchbox until it's time to gobble him up!
