We were looking for a quick, fun and cheap gift idea for my youngest to take into her religious ed class this week. We decided on Snowman Soup packets.
They turned out great and, better yet, it was something she could do on her own. I helped by printing out some bag toppers and packaging the marshmallows but the rest was up to her.
The ingredients for Snowman Soup:
You need some bags (I decided on the 4×12 bags by Wilton), some Hershey Kisses, mini marshmallows, hot cocoa packets and mini candy canes. We first cut about four inches off the tops of all the bags with my paper cutter. Then we used my food saver to package the marshmallows. We put a seam at the bottom, tossed in ten, and sealed the top. Perfect!
She packaged up the ingredients and stapled a bag topper on to them. I designed it on Word and used their clip art for a quick way to make it look good. I wrote the poem for the front and added directions to the back.
They turned out cute and she had lots of fun making them. They’re not super fancy but she can’t wait to hand them out.
Here’s my bag topper. Click on it and print it out on a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock. (If it doesn’t print out right, try copying it and pasting it into your word document.) Cut them out on the light gray lines. . . just don’t cut the fold line in the middle of the two. You get four per sheet. Feel free to use it for your own purposes but, if you don’t mind, please link it back to me if you re post it.
