For this weeks Homemade Monday project I’m sharing a winter craft we did with our moms group this past week. We created the most adorable Mini Marshmallow Snowman Ornament!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
- Fillable Clear Plastic Ornament
- Mini marshmallows
- Black & Orange Paint Markers
HOW TO MAKE YOUR MARSHMALLOW SNOWMAN ORNAMENT
Step 1: The first part is the most fun! Take the top of the ornament off and have your little one fill the ornament with marshmallows! Be sure to stuff as many in as you can to fill the whole ornament. Once it is full put the top back on. (Tip: Try to avoid licking fingers or snacking on the marshmallows until the end. If your little one gets the marshmallows even just a little bit wet they will stick to the ornament and not turn out as pretty. I suggest having your little one create the craft then eat a few at the end.)
Step 2: Using your black paint marker draw two dots for eyes and a mouth on the ornament. Next use your orange marker to create a carrot nose in order to complete the snowman’s face. Let set for 5-10 minutes to dry.
Step 3: While you are waiting for the paint to dry you can read a snowman themed book or make Snowman’s Soup (hot chocolate) together. Once your ornament is dry you can add string and hang on the tree.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Mini Marshmallows
- Chocolate Kisses

HOW TO MAKE SNOWMAN’S SOUP:
To make the make your homemade hot chocolate, add milk into a small saucepan. Warm over medium-low heat, then add chocolate chips and stir until melted. Pour into cups and add a splash of vanilla creamer. Add cool whip or marshmallows the top and add a candy cane for stirring.
