It seems I took an unintentional blog break. Some days are so busy! I'm glad to be blogging again- it means I have a moment.
For my daughters' class Valentine's Day exchanges, we made these Olaf Valentines (he's from the movie Frozen), which were originally posted here (I used Heidi's fabulous printable).
Jasmine and I stayed up late making the baggies (hence the blurry late night pictures).
They took FoReVeR because we were making so many, but they were adorable. I debated not posting them because Valentine's Day is over and Frozen won't be as popular in the future as it is this year. Then, I realized these can also be used for upcoming birthday parties or as a fun activity with your little ones.
I still used Heidi's printable and snowman concept, but added a label over the original Valentine's Day themed message and changed a few of my "materials" to what was more accessible to me.
I used marshmallows for the body and head, mini marshmallows for the feet, pretzel sticks for the arms, raisins for the buttons, mini chocolate chips for the eyes, and an orange tic tac for the nose.
I put them all in a baggie. On the label, I stamped the message, "Yes. I want to build a snowman," which is a different answer than Anna received to her song in the movie.
Here's my funny looking snowman:
I have plans to watch Frozen and build these little snowmen in the summer with my girls for one of our many summer break activities. It'll be fun when we're no longer dreaming of summer like Olaf and wishing for cooler days. ;)
