How to toast marshmallows when you see differently...
(an exercise in persistence!)

Toasting marshmallows has always been a favourite pastime of mine and something I now love doing with my own family.

It's hard enough trying to find a stick long enough to toast them without getting toasted yourself, let alone having different levels of vision in each eye, causing havoc with depth perception.

It took several tries of aiming the marshmallow towards the flame, then bringing it back, only to find it was barely warm, then back again and so on. Doing this with young children eager for a toasted marshmallow was definitely one way of teaching patience.

We did get there in the end!!
