- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp water
Begin by grabbing a bowl and mixing together the powdered sugar and water. Mix until it gets to be a goopy liquid - perfect for the icing glue that you'll use when building an igloo! Next, put the icing into a plastic bag and cut off a bit of a corner to squeeze your icing through.
Begin 'gluing' the marshmallows together with your icing. Be creative! You can make an igloo however big or small you want it. Want a 2 bedroom igloo? Windows? Go for it!
Once you have the foundation, begin stacking marshmallows to form an igloo shape. Get to building and you'll have a mini-winter home in no time!
Building an igloo is the best way to learn more about Inuit culture, the science of how snow is created and engineering!
