    Easy Snowman Craft – Hot Chocolate Gift Idea And Craft Project

    It’s hard to believe that Halloween is in less than a week, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and then it’s Christmas season. The weather is getting cooler, and the year is coming to a close right before our very eyes. I swear it was just summer a week ago. LOL!  We all know that with the cooler weather comes coughs and colds, huddling under blankets in front of a cozy fire, more game and movie nights with the kids, and other indoor activities. These hot chocolate gifts are perfect for neighbors and family and are the perfect gift for kids to make this holiday season. This easy snowman craft is the perfect thing to keep on your back burner for those stormy days – the ones that keep the kids indoors.

    How To Get Started On This Easy Snowman Craft

    Assemble the pillow boxes – they will come packed flat, so simply fold the ends over to make a gift box.

    Cut long strips of fabric or ribbon and wrap them around the lower half of the pillow box like a scarf. This snowman craft is easier than you think!

    Now your snowman is ready for filling.

    Tip: You can use individual sachets of hot cocoa, and then fill small Ziploc bags with mini marshmallows, or you can make up your own small hot chocolate bags like these. Just place hot chocolate mix and marshmallows into a small bag, fold over the top edge a couple of times and pop a peg on it to keep it closed.
