You'll find the things you'll need to construct this snowman....errrr....alien, right in your kitchen cupboards. Pretzels, marshmallows and raisins get you started.
I don't know about you, but I'm ready to chow down on this one! Have fun!
Let's see what we'll need:
The idea is deliciously simple. Here's a list of supplies that you'll need:
- Three regular-sized marshmallows and two mini marshmallows
- Raisins, cashews and almonds
- White frosting, honey, or other "sticky" food
InstructionsUsing our picture for reference:
1. Stack the three larger marshmallows by threading them on toothpicks
2. Stick on raisin eyes, an almond nose and a cashew mouth by spreading a tiny amount of honey on each and "glueing" in place.
3. Stick two toothpicks with mini marshmallows attached into the head for "alien" antennae.
Before you gobble up your easy winter craft snowman, keep in mind that we'd love to see him. Grab a camera, snap a photo of your finished craft and submit it to our "Show and Tell."
By now you know that I'm big on kids crafting. I think that the process a kid goes through in making the craft is so much more important than the actual end product. If I can get a kid to start thinking creatively, then I've done my job. For me, it's about giving kids the confidence they need to become productive, happy individuals. Yes, I believe that kids can do anything (and should be encouraged to do so).
So it's natural that I love seeing kids in the kitchen. Not just eating...but actually preparing food. My own mom taught me to make my own school lunches and it was a great move on her part. It wasn't long before my sister and I were helping her make weekly dinners. I got so much out of that experience that I've passed on that feeling of independance to my own children when it comes to meal prep.
I'm recommending this book, because it blends the worlds of crafting and cooking quite nicely. Although not every craft/recipe comes with an accompanying picture, you'll get the gist and your kids will benefit from the satisfaction that they can cook, craft and succeed at both!
