One of my all-time favorite Christmas movies is this version of Frosty the Snowman. Of course there are many others I love just as much or even more, but this one is one of my very favorite to watch with the kids. The classics are the best, aren’t they!!?? I’m also a fan of any activity the kids need little help with, can be done on a whim, and I give bonus points if the activity includes food meaning I won’t have to make another meal or snack. This is the perfect Frosty the Snowman activity, and it was simple to make, and delish! Plus, it’s adorable!

Stop by every day from December first through the twelfth for new ideas you can use to make your season brighter!
Meet Your Hosts
They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!
- mini bagels
- cream cheese
- apple slices but into tiny triangles
- pretzel sticks
What to do:
The easiest way to make the snowman bagels- especially if you’re working with more than one kiddo- is to put a little of each of the ingredients on a plate and let them do their thing.
We used chocolate chips for the eyes, and the mouth. Sugar crystal sprinkles to make our snowmen sparkly. Sprinkles to make a scarf, and buttons. Pretzel sticks for the arms and apple slices for the nose.
That’s what we used, but the possibilities are endless. You could use blueberries, raisins, or even go a different direction altogether, and use veggies!
I loved that I didn’t have to actually bake anything (I did toast the bagels before giving them to the kids). Clean up was really quick too!
Once the kids made their cute snowmen, and they were ready to eat them, they used all of their extra supplies to make their bagels even more exciting (at least to them!).
Mini bagels were the perfect size, and we didn’t have too many toppings, and they all sort of went together. I really do think simplicity was, and is, the key to doing things like this with kids. When I give them too many options, they tend to mix a lot of things that don’t taste good together, and then the food ends up getting thrown away when they won’t eat it.
No risk of that here, all of the bagels were gone!
