We’ve just survived the holidays, waved goodbye to 2014 and said hello to 2015. You know what is probably around the corner?
This lovely white stuff that is beautiful to look at and often treacherous to drive in.
That’s right. It’s the most wonderful “snowy” time of year.
I freely admit I’m a southern driver and would prefer to stay at home when travel is more dangerous. (In our neck of the woods that also means running to the grocery store for milk three days before there’s even a cloud in the sky!
Even if you live in a balmy climate this is a fun edible craft for the kids (and mama, too!)
Moms, why not be prepared for those unexpected days with this marshmallow snowman craft that will fuel your kids creativity and appetite!
You can make this entire snowman family with both jumbo and regular marshmallows (not minis).
Mama and papa have to have hats!
Don’t have cinnamon red hots? Maybe you can cut some other candies in half, or just use the chips for buttons.
If you don’t have striped chocolate chips just use whatever you have available.
Our snowman family needed a little assistance from my helper.
In fact, after all that playing in the snow they were just plain ol’ tired!
And this is what happens when mama ain’t happy!
What’s your favorite part of snow day?
- large and/or jumbo marshmallows
