During the month of December we have a couple of family movie nights as part of our Christmas advent calendar activities. This year when we watched Frosty the Snowman the girls made this adorable snowman treat. Since you only need a handful of ingredients I think it makes a cute snack for home or the classroom. You can use it like we did or incorporate it into a snowman or winter theme for school. Either way it’s a sweet kid-made treat that kids will have fun making and eating!
- Powdered sugar doughnuts
- Mini marshmallows
- Mini chocolate chips
- Gummy worms-Leave some whole. Trim others to make noses and mouths.
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Bells seasonal candies (You can substitute mini reese’s cups or a peanut free alternative if needed)
Before making our snowman treats we read (sang) Frosty the Snowman together. (You could also read another book from our snow books list.)
Then the girls made their snowmen and promptly gobbled them up before we watched the movie.
Extend the Learning
If you have toddlers and preschoolers still learning about facial features, use this activity to name the facial features and items as they are added to the snowman. Count how many eyes, noses, mouths, hats, scarves, and buttons the snowman has. As a challenge count how many snowballs are surrounding the snowman.
Continue the fun with full week of Snowman Activities
Save time and get right to the playful learning with our printable lesson plan sets.
