Snowman Stir Sticks

Okay, I am the first to admit to stealing ideas.....this idea came from my friend, Amy, with Life is Sweet.  This is such a fabulous idea, and the kids, and Grandpa, had a great time creating them.

First, you start with 8 inch lollipop sticks.  You can find these at Wal-mart, Hobby Lobby, or Michaels.
You stack 3 large (not campfire sized) marshmallows.

The scarves are fruit roll-ups cut into strips.  (That was Grandpa's job)  He figured out that if you cut them while the wrappers are still on, they don't stick together.
Wrap the roll-up around the "neck" of the marshmallow snowman.
These are AWESOME!!  They are Betty Crocker Easy Writer food coloring markers!
They are perfect to design your snowman's eyes, buttons, carrot nose, and mouth. 

Package your snowman stir stick with a packet of cocoa in a cellophane bag.  Voila!  A perfect, inexpensive gift for neighbor kids, teachers, and friends.
