Snowman Soup

I wanted to leave you with a little kit that makes both the young and the old smile. A few years ago a "Snowman Soup" kit was sent to me by a friend. It brightened my day and left me with something to share with others. I've made several of these and mailed out to many friends and even slipped them into mail boxes and packages. I thought I would share it with you since many of you , like myself are still in the Winter months.

Gather some mini marshmallows, Hershey kisses,peppermint stick or candy cane,cocoa packets.
Print this poem on paper or card stock:

When it's so cold that
you holler and whoop,
It's time to bring out
the Snowman Soup!

Pour the packet in a mug
Add the snowballs too,
throw in the kisses
from the snowman to you.

Now fill with hot water
and use the stick to stir it,
Sip slowly and soon you'll
feel the warm winter spirit!

Print out your choice of snowman image or use one below:
