Pinspiration: Snowman Soup for Your Students

I hope that you all had a good day back at school. I am sosososo glad we stared RACK Week in our classroom because it was a perfect connection to a Mr. Rogers quote that's been floating around:

Love :) I think this has really helped my thirdsters feel like they are part of the bigger picture of doing good and they have been sosososo excited to "RACK" this week and spread kindness- yay!!!

I wanted to share a fun treat I will be giving my kids on Friday as a part of their holiday gift: Snowman Soup!

I was inspired by this pin, but couldn't find its original source :(

If someone knows the source, please let me know so I can give proper credit :)

This is seriously the easiest thing to assemble and all of the ingredients are super-cheap and easy to find this time of year, so it's a win all around!

Here's what you'll need:

  • mini-marshmallows 
  • Hershey kisses (I chose the holiday ones to make them colorful)
  • hot chocolate packs
  • candy canes (they were out of mini and these are sort of medium-sized, so they still fit in the bag)
  • clear baggies (I used clear Ziploc and they aren't as cute as the inspiration, but they did the job just fine)
  • Snowman Soup tags 

Into each bag goes:

  • 1 packet of hot chocolate
  • 2 kisses (1 red & 1 green)
  • 1 candy cane
  • 10 mini-marshmallows
After I zipped the bag closed, I stapled the tag to the top and voila, Snowman Soup for each kiddo!

I will be giving these to the kiddos on Friday along with mini-books I received from Scholastic last year in a book order (love Scholastic!). I can only assume the kids will have eaten the candy cane, marshmallows and kisses by the end of the day, but at least they look cute now, right? ;)

You can pick up the Snowman Soup FREE Tags on Google Docs. Enjoy!

I hope your week is going smoothly and I am sending out lots of hugs to each of you, my wonderful teacher friends everywhere!! {{xoxo}}


  1. This is such a super sweet idea! I'm so bummed that we don't really get to do warm, wintering things for Christmas here in Australia - it's just so dang hot at the moment! Ice cream and softdrink are more the go :)

  2. Wonderful idea! I am using this for all of my holiday treat bags. Thank you.
