Donut snowmen

December 22, 2011

This is an incredibly easy gift for kids to make, so I wanted to make sure to share it while there are still a couple days before Christmas.  I grabbed the ipod and took a couple quick pics, so you have to imagine magnified cuteness in person.

Sam put these little donut snowmen together to pass out at school today.  They turned out super sweet, and were pretty inexpensive.  Each snowman consists of a pretzel rod bag (from the craft store), 3 powdered donuts or donut holes, and a ribbon scrap.  We made a template on one pretzel bag, then Sam just kept going until he had enough bags.  Once the donuts are in, the top is folded over and tucks perfectly under the ribbon scarf.  As Claudia would say, “Easy peasy lemon squeezy.”
