Kiddie Gift Bags Tiddly Style

For those of you who have perused my blog through the previous years, you have seen this project before in some form or another. It's so easy to do and great for the kiddies at Christmas time. As well, if I recall properly last year I took a break from Snowman Soup and made Reindeer Food ;D

This is the Christmas treat bags for both my First Grader's and my Kindergartener's classmates. I coloured up the snowman from Tiddly Inks - Inky Critters in PhotoShop and added the Snowman Soup poem before saving as a jpeg, which I turned into multiple gift tags for the treat bags. Easy Peasy - lemon squeezy.

My Snowman Soup had to be food allergy friendly, since there is a Glutton and a Nut Allergy in my DD's class. The mini marshmallows and Allen's candy canes were both allergy free, but I had a heck of a time finding wheat free hot cocoa. I finally found an organic brand that would fit the bill, but of course it was twice the price ;D Oh well!

Here is the snowman soup poem. I have been using this same one for a few years, like I said earlier, the kiddies love it.

Was told you've been real good this year
Always glad to hear it
With freezing weather drawing near
You'll need to warm the spirit
So here's a little Snowman Soup
Complete with stirring stick
Just add hot water, sip it slow
It's sure to do the trick

Submitted for the following challenges:
