Surprisingly, living where we do in Michigan, we have not yet had a snow day. This winter has been a lot more mild than we can remember, and the snow melts within hours of falling. The weather channel is even talking about this unusual lack of snowfall. While we have not had the chance to make a real snowman, the kids and I put together a snowman themed party with ideas that can be used if we actually do have a day off of school. Yesterday I shared how I made the snowman centerpiece here. Also pictured in this photo are the snowman drinking cups that Kara and I made.
I set up a construct a snowman station, using several sizes of marshmellows, and lots of other fun goodies.
There were snowballs, noses, pretzel arms, marshmallow babies, gumdrop and ring hats, fruit by the foot scarves, M & M eyes, and chocolate chip buttons. I also had some edible markers and cookie gel to draw on the faces.
Here are our creations... fun to make, and delicious to eat
We also had banana snowmen on a stick with chocolate chip eyes and pretzel stick arms. If you do these, make the slices thick enough for the stick to go through, or they could easily break.
Now if only we had a real snow day. While I am okay with the lack of snow, the kids are really hoping it happens soon.
