When we have friends over who have kids, I always try to have some sort of craft or something for them to do. Our friends came over this weekend and I didn’t have anything planned. I saw these cookies on Pinterest and thought they were adorable! I want to make those soon, but I had about an hour and a half before our friends were coming… and a bunch of other food to cook. I didn’t have time to bake or make icing, so I grabbed a few things at the store for the kids to decorate their snowman cookies to kinda look like those.

Plan cookies, white frosting, small tube of black and orange frosting.

All you need is some plain cookies (any brand), white frosting, and a small tube of black and orange frosting.

I ended up getting the gel writers at Hobby lobby. You could just scoop out some of the white frosting and dye it with food coloring if you want too. Then use a pastry bag to decorate.

Or you could have them add a little body and accessories!

These cookies would be a fun and easy activity to set up at the kids table at Christmas. Also, when your kids have friends over during Christmas break. I wish I thought of this earlier because this would be perfect for a Girl Scout troop snack. You could have each parent bring a pack of cookies or frosting.

Thank you for reading!!

Merry Christmas!
