#Playfulpreschool Do you want to build a Snowman,Treat!

Snowman Treats

Welcome to another Playful Preschool post. Playful preschool is where a group of fabulous bloggers bring to you weekly themed activities for free. Last week we gave you Healthy Kids and today were talking Snowmen. So I’m bringing you some Food Fun for Kids.

Sometimes it’s good to unwind after a week of hard learning with some SWEET FUN!

My girls (all my girls) have put in some hard work this week with learning new skills, and they all took an emotional hit in the stomach. This is a time where we would go out and play in the snow, but we don’t have any snow at the moment. So I took this exact opportunity to make them all smile if even just for an hour with a sweet treat.

 

Snowman snack

We made marshmallow snowmen!

These little marshmallow snowmen were so much fun to make. This activity got my girls to laughing and smiling and that lit my heart up. My preschooler worked on some problem solving and not sticking her fingers in food while my toddler worked on some spreading and cutting skills, my older girls were in this just for the fun. To make this kind of fun happen…

We used:

  • Jumbo marshmallows
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Sour punches
  • Grape licorice
  • Cream cheese frosting
  • Butter knives, spreading knives, Popsicle sticks whatever you want to use to spread, let them use their hands if you want.

So I would normally put some directions right here, but today there were none. I laid everything out for them, called them down, and told the girls that we were making snowman treats for ourselves and let them just have a go at it.

My preschooler was the first to dive in. She grabbed her some marshmallows and started spreading frosting on them to stick them together. After that, my toddler just followed along (you know that saying, monkey see monkey do? Well my toddler is in the following mode right now).

My preschooler quickly found out that the frosting sucked for sticking the marshmallows together and quickly moved on to sticking the pretzel sticks in them to hold them together.

I was very proud of my toddler. After many toppled over tries she finally got her snowman to stand. She never gave up and even when assistance was offered to her, she refused to tell us “I can do by self”.

In the end, we had some really nasty tasting snowmen but smiles all around the room.

I hope that you enjoyed this post. If you would like to see more Snowmen activities then check out some of the activities listed below by my fellow teammates. Until next time, later!
