Snowman Cinnamon Bun {Kids’ Project}

 Where I live, it’s winter for about 5 months of the year. Not kidding! It’s not like that everywhere in Canada…I just happen to live in Canada’s largest northern city.We have had a snowstorm in every month of the year…except for July! This year, we have had a full blanket of snow since the middle of October. Everything outside is freakin’ frozen! We try to embrace winter with lots of fun winter activities and in my city, we are lucky enough to have over 12 outdoor rinks…in addition to indoor rinks. To celebrate winter….I created this fun snowman project as a fun activity for kids.
Snow Man
This is an easy project that can be created with a can of refrigerated cinnamon buns, so it’s perfect for busy moms with crazy schedules during this holiday season. 
 For this project you will need:

-A can of refrigerated cinnamon buns {You will need 2 buns per snowman.}
-white frosting
-pretzel sticks for arms
-candies & sprinkles for decorating the snowman to make buttons and eyes
-sour straps candy to make the scarf


1. Use one cinnamon bun to make the bottom snowball for the snowman.

2. Take a second cinnamon bun and cut the outer ring of the bun off. Use this piece to make the head for the snowman. Let your child roll this into a ball for a head. Use the remaining piece of the bun to make the middle snowball for the snowman. Let your child assemble the snowman on a cookie sheet as shown.


3. Bake snowman as directed on the can of cinnamon buns. Let cool slightly.

4. Give your child the white frosting, a small spreader, pretzels, sprinkles and candies for decorating his/her snowman however they wish!

5. Eat and enjoy!

 Do you have snow in your neck of the woods? {I know without even asking that most of you don’t!}

    Oh come on now – you're just trying to be optimistic. I bet you have at least 6 months of winter as we get close to five. We have a dusting of snow on the ground right now. I heard you have an impressive bounty of snow.

    Cute snowman. I just need some little ones to make it with.

    Wow.. I didn't realize that it was so cold where you are. I love that you are making the best of it. This snowman treat is an awesome idea ~ one that I will keep tucked in the "things I want to do when it snows" list.
    Have a great weekend.

    We did this today, with the cinnamon roll tree too. A huge hit in our house! Between the tree and teh snowman, we used up the whole package! (we used the last 1/4 piece to extend the tree trunk, so ours is double-long, my 6YO came up with that solution for our last orphan piece)
