This week, the much anticipate My Little Pony movie comes out in theaters. My girl and I have been waiting for this day ever since we saw the preview several months ago. To celebrate, I created these fun My Little Pony Rainbow Dash Marshmallow Pops, which according to my kids, are delicious! Whether you are planning a My Little Pony party or just want to make a fun treat on movie day, these Rainbow Dash pops are sure to be a huge hit!
I’ve included my video tutorial, above, with step by step instructions on how to make these tasty mallow pops, and below you will find the free printable Rainbow Dash template for the candy pony silhouettes. I’ve also added Rainbow Dash’s cutie mark in case you’d like to make some for your own pops. You will need white, blue, yellow, and red candy melts and four Wilton’s squeeze bottles to create the cloud and rainbow lightning bolt cutie marks. Square marshmallows are the perfect size for these pops and the rainbow Airhead Extremes are the perfect addition to represent her rainbow tail. Don’t forget to grab a package of lollipop sticks and you will have all that you need to make your own Rainbow Dash mallow pops. #CommissionsEarned
This week I finally made the time to create a tutorial for the My Little Pony Capes that I make for my daughter’s ponies. While she was in school the other day, I made 3 new capes and when she came home she was thrilled! Just a couple of scraps of material, some pretty embellishments, and a little bit of my time has led to hours of imaginary play with ponies the past 2 days. Definitely time well spent!
To see more ideas for “My Little Pony” Capes, you can read my original post here. To learn how to make some of these tiny capes for your child’s own My Little Ponies, watch my tutorial above.
My daughter loves My Little Ponies! The thing that makes me so happy about this, is that I loved My Little Ponies as a little girl too! In fact, my mom actually saved several of my ponies and gave them to Karis a couple of years ago. I cannot even tell you how much fun it is to see my own child enjoying the very toys that I so often played with when I was her age.
One afternoon when Karis was playing ponies she asked me if we could make clothes for them. Now I can sew a little bit, but making clothes for tiny horses is beyond my abilities. I noticed that a couple of her newer ponies came with little capes. With a little trial and error, I figured out a simple way to make pony capes by using small hair scrunchies, scraps of material, and various ribbons, buttons, and fabric flowers that I had in my craft drawers. We spent several hours together designing these “outfits” for the ponies to wear. Most definitely time well spent with my girl, and it brings me joy to watch her play pretend while dressing her ponies up in their beautiful capes.
