Last weekend, on a rather wet and miserable Saturday we had a knock at the door. The postman had a big parcel and of course Edith being a true bloggers daughter got all excited as she thought it might be something for her. On this occasion she was right. It was a box from Hallmark full of Frozen goodies.
Of course when I say Frozen, I mean the hit Disney film, rather than things that have spent time in the freezer. Hallmark have created a new range of Itty Bittys and with the Olaf’s Frozen Adventure coming out in the cinemas soon it seemed like the perfect time to ask the question. Do you want to build a snowman?
Luckily the box of goodies had that covered and we set to work straight away building our army of snowmen. Now I’m not the most creative when it comes to decorating and Edith is still a bit little so you’ll have to forgive our attempts. But she had such a great time building a snowman with Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Sven watching on in the background.
I’ve popped the method we used below in case you fancy giving it a go.
A black icing pen
Small white marshmallows
Taking a clean pair of scissors cut 1/4 off the bottom of your large marshmallows. You will use the large part as Olaf’s body and the 1/4 for his head.
Squash the two parts together to create Olaf’s body. Place inside a cupcake liner.
Cut your mikados in half and push them into the side of the larger part of the marshmallow to create his arms.
Using the black icing pen stick the orange tictac into Olaf’s face, this will become his carrot nose. Squash down the small white marshmallow until it’s flat. Stick it onto the larger marshmallow with the icing pen. This will be Olaf’s toothy grin.
Using the black icing pen again, draw Olaf’s eyes and mouth. Don’t forget his eyebrows!
And you’re Olaf is ready to go.
What do you think of Hallmark’s new Itty Bittys range?
The Itty Bittys and activity box were gifted to us from Hallmark. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you to the brands that support Little Paper Swans.
