We finally did another stART project this week. It sure has been a while. Will and I had a fun spending time together doing something creative. I hope you like our project!
We read the book “Snowmen at Night” by Caralyn and Mark Buehner. It is a cute book that explores the adventures snowmen have at night. While we are sleeping, snowmen have all sorts of fun playing which may leave them looking disheveled in the morning. Will just loved the one snowman in the story who had a pickle for a nose instead of a carrot. He just kept laughing and pointing it out on every page.
For our project we made Melted Snowmen treats. I found this idea on Pintrest which led me here at Parents Magazine.
These treats were quick and easy — just the right project for a 4-year-old and his mom while the baby jumped in his jumper! Win-win for everyone!
First, melt almond bark (or candy melts) according to the directions on the package. After it is melted drop a heaping tablespoon of candy in a blob on waxed paper. Use the spoon to spread out the candy and shape it.
Hat: Wilton Light Cocoa candy melt with a Rolo attached (using a dab of almond bark)
Eyes and Mouth – mini chocolate chips
Nose: Orange Tic-tac
I put each item in a small bowl to make them easier to get at since we needed to work fast before the almond bark hardened.
Looks like our weather in the Midwest will be changing from melted snowmen weather to FREEZING in the next few days!
