2 craft sticks per child
3 regular size marshmallows per child
2 pretzel sticks per child
raisins, round cinnamon “red hots”, etc.
fruit rolls, 1 for each three children
white icing; small amount on paper plate for each child
1 chocolate cookie per child
1 mini peanut butter cup candy per child
Put three marshmallows on a craft stick, leaving a small tip of the stick to hold on to. Wrap fruit roll around the snowman's neck in a scarf fashion. Stick pretzels on either side of the middle marshmallow to make arms. Use the other craft stick and icing to “glue” hat, and other features onto the snowman.
Tasty S'more Wreath
Use a grapevine wreath as a fire circle. Inside the wreath, scrunch up multi-colored tissue paper flames (reds, oranges, yellow). Make "s'mores" by putting marshmallows on 5-6" twigs. Dip the marshmallows in melted chocolate and then cover with crushed graham crackers. Once hardened, stick the twigs into the wreath.
You start with 2 candy canes, sit with curve up, spaced apart. Place icing on them and then a whole chocolate bar (unwrapped). This makes the sled. On top of that, make a snowman w/ 2 marshmallows, securing them with icing and gluing him to the sled with icing.
Decorate the face with mini m&m's, a piece of red licorice whip/string for a scarf. Pretzels for arms, (coated in chocolate) Unwrap a Hershey Kiss for a hat.
