Sandee Rigaux, a teacher at Westwood School in Thompson, Manitoba Canada suggests the following: Gather one large marshmallow, toothpicks, pink paper ears and cloves.

Cut out two small pink ears from construction paper. Tape each "ear" onto a toothpick. Insert these "ears" into the top of the marshmallow. Take three cloves, push into the front of marshmallow for eyes and nose. Take four toothpicks, break them in half and push them into the marshmallow to create whiskers.
