These Airheads Marshmallow Snowmen are a super fun and edible craft to make and share for the holidays. A great project to do with kids and easy enough for parties.
This post is in partnership with Airheads.
The holidays are the perfect time to get your kids in the kitchen and get creative. I have always been the one to volunteer to bring the cupcakes or cookies for kid parties and I can often come up with a fun game but I’m pretty sure that I’ve never once come up with the craft!
So when I had the opportunity to create something fun with Airheads, I mentioned it to Emmet. Airheads are his absolute favorite and he immediately had the idea for marshmallow snowmen. We did a little brainstorming and knew this would be a fun and easy project to do together.
We gathered up Emmet’s favorite variety pack of Airheads and some giant marshmallows along with some skewer sticks. I found skewer sticks that were not pointy in the cake decorating section.
Emmet was in charge of opening the wrappers, while I did the cutting. We cut small squares for the buttons and rolled them into balls. Don’t worry if they are not all the same size, just close is fine. We also cut triangles for the noses. We thought the Orange Airheads made perfect carrot noses.
Next up were the eyes. We tried to get these close to the same size, in pairs at least. These were made the same as the buttons, cut into squares and rolled into balls with our hands.
We cut tiny strips of Cherry Airheads for the mouths and just gave them a little curve for a smile.
The scarves were a little more work.
I cut the Grape and Blueberry Airheads in half lengthwise and pinched the ends together.
We placed it between waxed paper and rolled them out to about 10 to 12 inches long.
We twisted the strands together for a layered look.
We tried a couple of different hat versions and ended up going with Emmet’s idea of a Santa hat. We used the White Mystery Flavor Airheads and Cherry Airheads for the hats. We cut triangles and a tiny strip of the White Mystery Flavor and then cut it into four pieces for the tips of the hats.
We cut strips and rolled them with our hands to lengthen them just a bit.
We twisted the white and red strips together and shaped them into circles.
Next we threaded the marshmallows onto the skewers.
Added the eyes, nose, and mouth.
Added the buttons.
Added the scarf.
And the hat ring.
We pressed the Cherry triangles into the front of the hat rings.
Pretty simple and super cute! Airheads were super easy to work with and made for a really tasty treat! If Emmet and I can make these, anyone can!
We had a lot of fun putting these together and they are simple to customize with your own ideas.
Wrap these Airheads Marshmallow Snowmen in plastic wrap or cellophane bags for storing and gift giving.
