A Winter Craft and a Snack

Paige and I have been talking about what to do for an upcoming playgroup we are hosting and this snowman snack was one of the activities we have been planning on doing.  When I was at the grocery store this morning and the little boxes of mini powdered donuts were on sale, I decided maybe we could have a spur of the moment test run for our crafty snack.  Paige was thrilled when I picked her up from pre-school and told her the good news of the donut sale.  The second we walked in the house the project had to begin.  She and Brynne and I all got to work and created our masterpieces.  It only took minutes, but the smiles and powdered sugar little faces were priceless!  So here are the supplies you need:

powdered donuts (regular, mini's, or even donut holes would work)
pretzel sticks
chocolate chips (we used the mini ones)

For the play group, we think we will suggest the girls lay they donuts flat because they don't stay together real well, but it doesn't matter if you are eating them immediately, or if you are doing this with older kids, you could use toothpicks to make them stick together better.
