Excerpt From Foodimentary Post About Marshmallow Day:

Five Things To Know About Marshmallows

“This confection is the modern version of a medicinal confection made from Althaea officinalis, the marshmallow plant.
Not all marshmallows are vegan, most marshmallows contain eggs or animal based gelatin.
The marshmallow is a confection that, in its modern form, typically consists of sugar, corn syrup, water, gelatin that has been softened in hot water, dextrose, vanilla flavorings, and sometimes coloring, whipped to a spongy consistency.
The marshmallow probably first came into being as a medicinal substance, since the mucilaginous extracts comes from the root of the marshmallow plant, Althaea officinalis, which were used as a remedy for sore throats.
Concoctions of other parts of the marshmallow plant had medical uses as well.”

One of the activities involves Marshmallow Play Dough which is sweet and edible and here is a link to the recipe:
www.GrowingAJeweledRose.com/2015/02/marshmallow-dough-recipe.html

YouTube has videos about making marshmallows at home with pretty colored marshmallows. This is one of the videos called Homemade Marshmallows:

You can see in this homemade marshmallows recipe that you don’t have to use eggs you can use unflavored gelatin. This is the recipe for Homemade Marshmallows that was in the video transcript.

“Homemade Marshmallows
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup corn starch
1 cup ice cold water, divided
3 packages unflavored gelatin powder
1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5-6 drops red food coloring
Cooking spray

1.Combine powdered sugar and corn starch in a small bowl. Sift half of the mixture over 3 sheet trays to coat. Reserve the other half of the mixture for later.
2.Pour 1/2 cup cold water into a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Sprinkle in the gelatin powder and let it dissolve and soften, about 15 minutes.
3.In a heavy bottomed saucepan fitted with a candy thermometer, combine 1/2 cup water, sugar, corn syrup and sea salt. Over medium heat bring the mixture to a boil and cook until it reaches 240F or the soft-ball stage. Immediately remove from heat.
4.Turn the stand mixer on low and break up gelatin. With the mixer running slowly pour hot sugar mixture over the bloomed gelatin. Slowly turn the mixer up to medium speed and continue to beat the mixture for 15-20 minutes; it will become light, fluffy, white in color and triple in volume. Add vanilla and food coloring and beat 1 minute.
5.Prepare a large pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Spray the inside of the pastry bag with cooking spray. Transfer the marshmallows to the pastry bag and pipe stars onto the prepared sheet trays, making sure to leave space between each marshmallow. Sprinkle the finished marshmallows with the remaining sugar and cornstarch mixture. Let sit at room temperature for a couple hours or overnight.”
