Edible Igloos

Rebecca Lanham

You and children of any age can make these simple "igloos" with 1/2 of an apple (or orange), peanut butter (or marshmallow fluff) and mini marshmallows.

Items Needed:

  • 1/2 an apple (or orange)
  • peanut butter (or marshmallow fluff)
  • mini marshmallows
  • mini paper plates
  • plastic spoons

  • newspaper

Optional Items:

  • paint shirts or aprons, and pretzel sticks


  1. Cover working surface with newspaper.
  2. Cut apple in half and cut out core (or peel orange and cut in half). Place the half piece of fruit on a mini paper plate. *At this time, an apron or paint shirt can be put on the child.
  3. With a spoon spread peanut butter or marshmallow fluff so that it completely covers the fruit.
  4. Stick mini marshmallows in a circle around the base of the fruit. Keep covering the fruit with mini marshmallows, moving up with each row completed.

When done, you have an igloo that is good enough to eat.

*Optional Step 5: Add a pretzel stick chimney or two to the igloo.

A very simple craft for even the youngest child.

That's a cool idea! I'll have to do that with my daycare kids, they'll love it.
