[ARCHIVED] Snowman Contest - Today Only!

Snowman Contest Spotlight


Looking for something to do? Bundle up and head outside to create your very own snowman! When you're done, don't forget to snap a photo for our contest! The winning snowman maker will receive a gift card to Here's The Story Bookstore. Stay safe, stay warm and have fun.


Happy snow day! If you’re not ready yet to brave the blizzard to build a snowman outside (don’t forget to enter our contest once you do!), we have the perfect indoor activity for you… build a marshmallow snowman! It’s a perfect diversion for the entire family – set out all of the supplies and decorations and let everybody put their own creative spin on their snowman. Start by collecting the basic items you’ll need to construct your snowman family. First on the list is obviously a few marshmallows per person, but you’ll also need something to slide the marshmallows onto (i.e. a straw, chopstick, skewer). Then, raid the pantry for anything you can use to decorate. Mini chocolate chips or M&Ms can be the buttons or even the eyes. A piece of licorice could make a scarf. A stray candy corn from Halloween would make a colorful nose, so would a cut piece of Starburst. Get creative and think outside the box for your snowman decorations! If you have a jar of frosting on hand, use that to glue your decorations to the marshmallows. If not, make up a small batch of your own by mixing 1/2c of confectioner’s sugar and a tablespoon of milk. Once your snowman has dried, snap a few pictures and then devour!
