Snowflake peanut butter sandwiches, powdered suger donut hole snowballs, and vanilla yogurt. I don't usually have donut holes, so that was just lucky coincidence; I bought them specially to make a treat.
Bella got a muffin cup meal. I had already made it the night before, otherwise I would have made her something frost-inspired too - but I don't think she'll be disappointed with this :)
This is why I got the donut holes. Sweet Snowmen!
I can't take credit for the idea though, I think it was in Family Fun magazine.
Anyways, I used donut holes for mine instead of mini donuts, carrot slivers instead of candy corn, and bits of licorice instead of frosting - but same idea. I also made Santa hats with strawberries, leftover cookie frosting, and a couple of the oatmeal mini-muffins, and put them together with the snowmen to make a fun & festive snack for my two smallest sproutlets to enjoy after I dragged them around on errands this morning:
Aren't these little Santa hat strawberry topped muffin treats adorable! I saw them done with brownies by Lunchboxes with Love, but since I had muffins made I thought they'd do just as well:
Oooh, I almost forgot, the reason I decided to make the snowmen donut treats this week! For Read.Explore.Learn.! I've been reading the small sproutlets "Snowmen At Night" by Caralyn & Mark Buehner.
It's such a cute book! The illustrations are lovely, and the kids laugh at the snowman shenanigans. The last verse of the book is the greatest though:
"So if your snowman's grin is crooked,
or he's lost a little height,
you'll know he's just been doing
what snowmen do at night!"
Thank you, Snowmen At Night, for making it easier for me to smooth over the discovery of a snowman not as my children left him :)
There's also some learning fun hidden in the book, secret shapes that have been painted into each scene... like Santa's face in the snow, a T-Rex in the moon... the girls had fun searching for them, and now they race to be the first to point them out when we turn the page :)
Thank you to Pickle's 1st grade teacher Mrs. Nickerson,he received this book as a Christmas gift from her!
