Marshmallow Snowmen ~ Easy Kids Christmas Craft

This post contains affiliate links. For more information, visit my disclosure page

Katie and Tyler came for a visit today.  Since going outside was out, I decided to teach them how to make marshmallow snowmen. They love marshmallows so I figured they could eat the snowmen and the mess if I make everything edible. Brilliant huh? I do have my moments lol! You can easily make these with stuff you already have in your pantry as long as you have marshmallows that is.

We used:


Mini chocolate chips

an orange marshmallow peep (leftover from hallowween)

white chocolate discs (you can use any chocolate you want)


First melt the while chocolate in a small bowl. I used this to attach the eyes, nose etc… We used stick pretzels to apply the chocolate to the marshmallows.

On the first marshmallow we made the face using the mini chips and the cut up peep. On the other marshmallow we used the pretzels for the arms and mini chips for the buttons


We put some white chocolate on the flat part of the marshmallow so we could stack them.

Tyler thought they turned out pretty good. He wanted to eat them 🙂


We used a fruit roll up to make a scarf.


And now the best part of all…eating the little fella.

    These are so cute and the kids are even Wayyyyyy Cuter. I made some sort of cookie or something awhile back that had marshmallows and the grands loved the leftover marshmallows more than the recipe, lol! So they’d surely love these! Going to bookmark to make ’em! 🙂

    So cute! Wish I would have looked here while I was still with my grandsons. I ran out of crafts sooner than expected (since weather was cruddy and we spent most of the time indoors). Thank you for linking to the GRAND Social. And best wishes for the most merry of holidays for you and your sweet, adorable family!
