Ingredients: Six cups popped popcorn, a large package of
marshmallows, a half cup of margarine, candy decorations, and
plastic sandwich bags
On low heat or in a microwave oven, melt a large package of
marshmallows and a half cup of margarine. Stir well, then add
six cups of popped popcorn. Mix well. You may add more popcorn
to make the mixture less sticky, but make sure the popcorn sticks
together well enough for children to mold.
Kids LOVE these Sunday School resources!
Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Give each child plastic
sandwich bags to use as gloves and a mound of the mixture to form
into a snowman. Children can add candy features with M&M’s
candies, gumdrops, licorice whips, and pretzel sticks for the face,
buttons, and arms. Provide plastic sandwich bags if children will
be taking their snowmen home.
Ingredients: Peanut butter, powdered sugar, and coconut

Mix equal amounts of peanut butter and powdered sugar. Add
more powdered sugar if needed to make the dough less sticky. Have
the children roll the dough into balls, then roll in coconut flakes
to make snowball treats.
Ingredients: Gelatin set inside cookie sheets, gingerbread
people-shaped cookie cutters, whipped topping, paper plates, and
Have children use spoons to spread whipped topping on a paper
plate. Then help children cut out one or two gingerbread shapes
from the gelatin. After children place their gingerbread shapes in
the whipped topping “snow,” have them use their fingers to make
angel wing prints in the snow.
As the children eat their snow angel treats, encourage them to
thank God for all the seasons.
