To make your marshmallow snowmen you will need:

  • Big marshmallows, tiny marshmallows and some gum drops for the hats.
  • A red licourice lace or similar (try your local pick ‘n’ mix)
  • Icing sugar and water to make your ‘glue’. Add 3 heaped tablespoons of icing sugar into a bowl, then mix in 2 teaspoons of water and stir. This should give your glue a nice sticky consistency.
  • Squeezy tubes of coloured icing (or you can use icing sugar mixed with food colouring)
  • A grown-up to help you with the tricky bits

Time to make: 25 minutes
Difficulty level: Easy
