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 (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! 🙂
