This winter and Christmas season we have been taking it very easy waiting for this little baby to come, just a little bit longer! I wanted to share some fun cake pops and balloon snowmen we made last year. The kids loved to make them and our snowmen stayed around for quite awhile.
Snowman Cake Pops
The faces could have been a lot cuter, but I just used what was on hand! I stacked three chocolate cake balls onto a stick and covered all three balls in candy melts at the same time. Be a bit gentle, the cake balls can get a bit too heavy, break, and fall off. I only had blue candy melts but loved the color covered in the white sprinkles. Next time, when I have more supplies and time, I will make the faces a bit more endearing.
During our evening "snow" would randomly fall down upon us. "Snow" was in the form of marshmallows that I threw up in the air. The kids LOVED it and thought it was hilarious!
For our fun activity, we made...
These turned out even better than I imagined. Besides the white balloons, I used materials I had on hand. My husband bought these awesome hats in New York City, I was so sad when my children grew out of them last year, but now we have a Logan and Hannah Snowmen that can wear them! For adhesive, I used crafting glue and glue dots. We also used some clear tape to tape the balloons together. I did tie two balloon ends together and then had to glue the bottom balloon to the top two.
A few materials we used:
Eyes and nose- buttons
Mouth and arms- pipe cleaners
Scarfs- fabric scraps
Other fun materials- rafia, marshmallows, chocolate chips, popcorn kernels, silly string, and sticks.
I would love to read your fun "winter" activities! I'm always on the lookout for new ideas!
