Now that the holidays are over and a new year has started, it’s important to get kids excited about going back to school. Because my kids go to year-round schools, they are just starting back to school this week. I love the long track-out because it gives us more time to get back into a normal schedule after the holidays and to get prepared for school.
We spent a few days last week cleaning out backpacks, getting all of their uniforms and accessories organized, and shopping for lunch and snack groceries. My husband and I began limiting the amount of tech and tv the kids could have and over the weekend, made sure the kids all started getting to bed earlier.
We were almost completely ready for the kids to track back in to school except for one thing – attitude.
To help get the kids excited about heading back to class, we made a few fun treats for them to look forward to taking in their lunchbox. I wanted to share our favorite – Pudding Cup Snowmen.
To make these fun and easy Pudding Cup Snowmen, just grab your favorite Snack Pack® Pudding Flavor, marshmallows, chocolate candies and ribbon.
Decorate the marshmallows with facial features. You can use candies poked into the marshmallow or draw on the marshmallow with a food-safe pen, like we did.
For the hats, stack taller chocolate candy on top of a cookie or flat piece of chocolate. We used rolled candy that was softened for a few seconds in the microwave, then flattened into a round base for the hat.
Use a glue gun, glue or tape to fasten the ribbon around the top of the pudding cups. Cut and fasten two shorter ribbon pieces to resemble the ends of a scarf.
Place your marshmallow snowmen on top of the pudding cups and top with the chocolate hats.
We’ve been having a balll! Check out our other fun pudding cup DIY projects:
