National Marshmallow Day

We decided we needed a new holiday, so yesterday was National Marshmallow Day* at Casa de McMiller.  Armed with a pack of mini-marshmallows, a pack of star shaped marshmallows, and an armload of toothpicks, we set to work.

Robin mostly made ate a handful, made some triangles and sticks, then ate another handful.

Erin was totally focused.  She spent a good 20 minutes constructing.  She built mostly churches.  We worked on how to made a 2-D triangle into a pyramid to stabilize her spire.  And when the construction was finished:

What should be our next holiday?

*There is a National Toasted Marshmallow day on August 30, but who needs to wait for that?

Pie Day!

(Or belated Pi Day, b/c It's always Pie Day in my book.)

Will National Marshmallow Day be on the same day of the week or the same date every year? (Want to get it on the calendar for next year.)
