Do You Want To Build A Snowman ~ Edible Craft

During our snow storm, I have tried desperately to find ways to entertain the kids and keep them off of their electronics most of the day light hours.  You'd think the snow would deter them, but sometimes, it's just too darn cold to play in the snow.  HAHAHA.  YES, I really said that. Today, however, they have NOT been on their electronics much AT ALL.  They shoveled a neighbors driveway for $15 and they have been sleigh ridding.

I made the "Do You Want To Build A Snowman" labels (above) and created a plate of gourmet candies, from the Fresh Market. I told the kids to build a snowman. Afterwards, they could eat him. 
The plate included: large marshmallows, licorice pinwheels, gourmet mints, pretzel sticks. mini oreos, a lemon cookie, gumdrops, licorice drops, black m&ms, an orange jelly belly, and an orange good and plenty!
I gave them a teaspoon of marshmallow fluff, a teaspoon of peanut butter, a toothpick, and a skewer fork.  These were their assembly tools.  
And the kids enjoyed getting creative.  
I know from these photos, Ty doesn't look like he's having fun, but he was.  He's just like his mom though.  Everything has to be perfect, so he was annoyed that his pieces were being stubborn and not adhering with permanency.  
Here is Ty's, what I can, Mexican snowman.  He looks like he is ready to go to the South Of The Border.
Jax worked very intently.
His snowman looked Chinese.
Liley worked very daintily.  
Liley's was the most creative.  She made a pipe and a broom stick!
I have uploaded my label and will include it, FREE, here, if you want to use it!!!
