A few weeks ago, I saw a picture of these super cute ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman’ goody bags for holiday parties. The bags featured Olaf, the snowman from Frozen, and then had components in the bag where you could make a snowman. When I went back to find the picture, of course I couldn’t find. So, I recreated it from memory and they turned out really cute. (So, thank you to the person who first posted this! I wish I could link to your craft!)
These also make great D.I.Y. Christmas gifts for a class or group. We made ours for our annual cookie decorating party, but had some leftover. We took the leftovers to Ella’s Spanish class and they were thrilled! The teacher even created a snowman learning unit around them.
Even though Frozen is a movie, we (of course) recommend reading the Frozen book first, making the Olaf snowman from the bags, and then watching the movie. You can actually make an entire afternoon theme session from it!
We’ve included the free template that we used here. However, if you want to make your own, just search on “free Disney clipart Frozen.”
I didn’t put total amounts with the craft because the amount you will need will depend on how many bags you’re making. However, I did put the amount you would need to make one bag.
How to Make Frozen DIY Snowman Goody Bags
Resealable plastic bags (sandwich size)
Bag toppers (from the free template)
Bag of large marshmallows (3 large marshmallows for each bag for the head and body)
Bag of small marshmallows (2 small marshmallows for each bag for the feet)
Bag of pretzel sticks (2 for each bag for the arms)
Mini brown M&Ms (3 for each bag for the buttons)
Candy corn (1 for each bag for the nose)
Candy eyes (2 for each bag for the eyes)
White icing (in a tub)
- Print out the “Do You Want to Make a Snowman” FREE template.
- Trim and fold the template to fit the top of your bag sizes. Set aside.
- In the small poly bags, place a small amount of white icing and seal. (This will be used as the “glue” to stick the snowman together and hold the items (like the M&M buttons, etc.) on.) Place the icing bag in the bigger resealable bag.
- In the bag, also place:
- 3 large marshmallows
- 2 mini marshmallows
- 2 pretzel sticks
- 3 mini brown M&Ms
- 1 candy corn
- 2 candy eyes
- Seal the bag. Line up the folded topper (from the template) with the “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” facing what you want to be the front of the bag. Staple the topper on each side.
