homemade marshmallows.

We celebrated Monday's no-school holiday by trying our hands at homemade (star shaped) marshmallows. I still cannot get over eating marshmallows with true vanilla bean specks and didn't mind sharing the marshmallow fluff from the beater before the mallows set. The perfectly fun-for-all winter-appropriate activity, I vote. (Makes a sweet gift, too.) Star recipe (and photos) here.
