It was nothing complicated or time-consuming, but I did get good-mother points. Large marshmallows, a bit of food coloring (orange for the "carrot nose" and blue for the dotted mouth), toothpicks (for stability, arms, and painting on food coloring), chocolate chips (for the eyes), and a bit of frosting to hold on the eyes. Easy.
They loved their marshmallow snowmen! And it made me feel like a crafty Mom (which I really am not). I'll take all the bonus points I can get.
I hope I remember to go play in the snow with my kids more. It's good for all of us.
