Make Your Own Snowman - Treat Bag

Hard to believe that the kids will be on winter break soon, which means there will be holiday parties at school in just a few days!  At our school, the kids love bringing little treats or gifts for their friends in their classrooms.  Maybe this is a blessing for our kids because they go to a very small school.  I decided that this year, since Jude only has a class of 5, we would be making something a little more complex for those friends. 

I decided it would be a fun little craft and project to have the kiddos make their own play dough snowmen.  So, I created a little treat bag full of items to have the kids make their own snowmen.  I love the way this turned out and I cannot wait to see how they enjoy it.

I started thinking about how this project could come all together and I found some great items from Amazon that were easily delivered right to my door.

This is what our test snowman turned out like.  The buttons might be a bit big but I think it was a fun project to do with my kids.
