Diy craft ideas for summer

Avengers are so favorite correct now – at least they are in my home. That’s just one of the reasons why I love these Avengers bookmarks that your kids can make from popsicle sticks.

RAINBOW UNICORN TIE DYE SMORES, EVERYONE!

Who. Is. Excited? *THIS GIRL!* I wish you every could own been in the studio while we were shooting these. Poor Jeff, surrounded by three girls squealing over how enjoyment, colorful and AMAZING these are. We knew we had to go large or go home for the upcoming National Smores Day (August 10th!) so we went large. And we went home. And now, we shall every vow to eat more colorful smores. Heres how

3 packages unflavored gelatin (1/4 ounce packets)
1 1/4 cup water, divided
2 cups sugar
1 cup corn syrup
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Powdered sugar
Gel food coloring (electric pink, electric blue, electric purple, turquoise green, yellow)
88 Pan

1.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, put the powdered unflavored gelatin with 3/4 cup freezing water.

Let sit.
2. In a little sized pot, combine the sugar, corn syrup and remaining 1/2 cup of water. Heat over medium and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lift heat to high and cook until the mixture reaches degrees.
3. Using a fine mesh sieve, completely cover the bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan with a solid layer of powdered sugar. Own five bowls and five spoons ready before whipping the marshmallow.
4. Turn stand mixer to low and carefully pour the boiling sugar mixture into the gelatin.

Turn the speed up to high and whip for 5 to 7 minutes. Add vanilla and stir till combined. (If making plain white marshmallows, continue to whip for a entire of 15 minutes. In order to make and swirl the diverse colors, you need the marshmallow mixture to be a little softer, so only whip for 5 to 7 minutes.)
5. Once you own whipped the mixture, quickly divide the marshmallow into the 5 bowls and color each one with the diverse gel food colorings. Work quickly as the mixture will set fast.
6.

You are going to pour the marshmallow into the pan in 2 layers. For the first layer, in a clockwise direction, put half of the purple in one corner, then half of the pink next to it, followed by half of the yellow, half of the green and ending with half of the blue which should also join back to the purple.
7. Using a stick of any helpful (a chopstick works perfectly!), start to swirl the colors into each other, careful not to completely stir the colors together. This is the enjoyment part! Every batch will be different.
8.

Repeat the process on top of your first layer but start the purple in a diverse spot than before. This just helps to ensure that every marshmallow will own a little bit of every color. Gently swirl the colors only in the new top layer.
9. With the fine mesh sieve, cover generously with powdered sugar and flatten the surface with your hands. Let sit uncovered overnight to set.
Run a knife along the edges. Remove the marshmallows from the pan and cut into squares.
