After lunch on Sunday, I told my grown kids we were making dessert together. They looked at each other and sighed.  {Thinking, “Here goes Mom, again!”}

Rice Krispy Snowman & Frozen Banana Snowmen

As they cleared the table, I got all the supplies for Rice Krispy Snowmen. Ashley & Kali had already made our frozen banana snowmen before lunch.  I had a few examples printed from pinterest, but they used their creativity to make edible snowmen.

Before you knew it, they were all having fun and laughing . . . even Steve 🙂

We tried dipping bananas in melted white chocolate, but it was too thick.  We changed to white candy bark which was much easier to use. snowman crafts for kids

Before candy hardens, add mini chocolate chips for eyes & buttons and orange Reeses piece for a nose.

By the way, Steve did participate in our desert making.  He held these snowmen against his solid gray shirt so I could take pictures.  Thanks, hubby for a dark background 🙂

If you post pictures of this craft, let me know. I’d love to see your family’s creativity.
