Snowman Soup Craft

Want a totally fun and unique winter party favor? This snowman soup craft is the perfect thing! It's a cute idea and really inexpensive and quick to put together.

The gift itself is quite simple ... basically hot chocolate mix and some marshmallows. You can also add some Hershey's kisses, a chocolate spoon or a candy cane. The fun is in the idea and the presentation. Add the "ingredients" to some cute snowman paper cups. Ceramic mugs are also a fun idea.

Then choose what type of bag or box you'd like to present the favors in. Try a cellophane baggie, a brown lunch bag, a colored or patterned gift bag, or a box or basket. Add some ribbon or a snowman ornament. Attach printable labels or cards to your bags or boxes. If you want to attach them as gift tags, use cardstock or business cards.

Play with this idea and make it your own. How about all organic ingredients? Or vegan? Find some recycled paper gift bags to go with these ideas. If you have a good recipe for hot chocolate, combine your own dry ingredients. Put everything into a mason jar and include instructions for how much liquid to add. Layering the ingredients will give the jar an artistic look.

Have fun with these!
