Spending an entire day outdoors on the slopes makes Snowkids--and Snowmamas and Snowpapas-- hungry.
Sometimes, my kids are so tired they don’t even want to eat and then they get cranky. That's why we try to keep enough snacks ready. Here are some of my favorite fun snacks. A bonus: they look like snowmen. Your kids will love making them with you and suddenly, you are the coolest Snowmama at the resort.
Forget about healthy, these are just for fun! You need toothpicks, large marshmallows and black licorice. Assemble snowmen by inserting toothpicks into the marshmallows, using licorice to make eyes and mouths. This is also a fun activity to keep the kids occupied while you cook dinner. Serve with hot cocoa - ripping these apart and dropping into hot cocoa is equally fun.
YOGURT RAISIN FACES
Simply add black licorice eyes and mouth to a bowl of yogurt-overed raisins and you'll immediately get a smile from your tired kids.
CHEESE & CRACKER SNOW PEOPLE
Cheese. whole wheat crackers, hummus and fruit are a healthy, year round favorite in our house. . We turned them into snowmen by using round baby swiss cheese, olive “eyes” in the hummus and a carrot for the nose.
RITZ CRACKER SNOWMEN
You need three crackers per snowman, and additional crackers for their hats. (You can also make hats out of fruit or veggies, like bell peppers). Spread cream cheese on the crackers, cut olives as buttons and a carrot for nose. Pretzel sticks make great arms.
