There’s just something so WINTERY about a bag of miniature marshmallows! I have been staring at my bag of mini-marshmallows for a week trying to come up with a fun activity to celebrate this delicious and seasonally helpful treat.
After I enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate piled high with those babies, I came up with this…!!!
I was so excited I worked way too fast and forgot all about taking pictures of the step-by-step process. Talk about a moment of inspiration! 🙂
But it’s pretty self-explanatory, really.
Just glue your mini marshmallows into a snowman shape.
Then take one marshmallow and dip it into white paint. Decorate the background of your snowman scene with marshmallow-printed snowflakes! I thought that this was such a clever way to make a winter-y background!
Add facial features and accessories to your snowman using paint (I used puffy paints – my fave!)
Don’t forget pretzel stick arms!
And let me tell you, the Happy Buddy is OBSESSED with pretzel sticks right now, so whenever he sees this snowman-of-magicalness (which is everyday because it is hanging on our fridge), he starts jumping up and down and trying to rip the pretzels off as a snack. You’d think he’d want those sweet marshmallows but he only has eyes for the arms! I literally came into the kitchen the other day and he had his mouth ON THE PAPER. 🙂
Finally, sprinkle glitter or fake snow on the wet paint – because glitter makes EVERYTHING better.
Happy Marshmallow Snowman-ing! 🙂
