Make Snowman's Body

Make a snowman's body with two scoops of mashed potatoes.

Decorate Snowman

Decorate your snowman with different pieces of vegetables. We used green beans for arms, peas for eyes, and a carrot piece for the nose. Feel free to use whatever vegetables that inspire you or that you have on hand. Make sure everything is cool enough to touch if your child is helping to decorate the snowman.

Eat Up!

Pile some extra veggies around the base of the snowman, and let your child dig in!
