Snowman Soup

Snowman Soup Project Idea

Every year we make these little bags up and give them to just about everyone we know. My children pass them out at school, all of our family gets them, and last year for the first time, we sent them to the troops. Our goal was to try and send a little bit of festive holiday cheer- and what creates that more than a picture of a snowman while sipping hot cocoa! Again this year, we have started assembly in our house, and we encourage you to do the same. We would love for you to create them and send them to our 
"Operation: Send Some Cheer" to be included in every care package sent.

It's so simple to create. You can use just about any type of hot cocoa, candy cane, and hershey kisses. When we make them for friends, we bag mini marshmallows, but since they are going to service members, it can only be pre-packaged items, so we use the kind of cocoa that already has marshmallows in it! If you don't have hershey kisses, you can put small plain chocolate bars instead. Be sure to check expiration dates, they need to have a few months left on their shelf life, so we don't make anyone sick!

Here's the contents:
Now as for how many of each item- it's your call. We like to put in 2 cocoa packets, 4-6 kisses, and 2 candy canes. Singles are good to- do what you're comfortable with!
Here it is packaged in a festive bag.

As for the hang tag, this is what is says: 

Was told you've been real good this year
Always glad to hear it! 
With freezing weather drawing near,
You'll need to warn the spirit.
So here's a little Snowman Soup
Complete with stirring stick.
Add hot water, sip it slow,
It's sure to do the trick! 

If you google Snowman Soup a plethora of printable tags come up :)
