Elf Snowman Craft Materials

How Your Elf Should Set Up the Elf Builds Marshmallow Snowmen Scene

1. Use markers to draw faces and buttons on regular-sized marshmallows. Marshmallows can be stacked in 2’s and 3’s to create snowman bodies.

2. Put a twisty tie around the “neck” of each snowman to make a scarf.

3. Stick toothpicks into the marshmallows to make arms. (I used wooden skewers and cut them down to size.)

4. For the sign: Print our page of free printable snowman signs.  These hold up best on card stock, but regular printer paper should work fine.  Note: these printables are for personal use only. Cut out the sign you would like to use.  Tape a toothpick to the back of the sign and stick the other end of the toothpick into a regular-sized marshmallow.

5. Sprinkle regular and mini marshmallows around the scene.

That’s it!  So cute and easy!

Your elf might leave some snowman building supplies nearby so that the kids can make more snowmen to decorate the scene.  That’s up to the elf!
