Snowman Breakfast for the Kids with Free Printables

Long, cold Winter days can be difficult to keep the kiddos busy and happy! Creating a fun Snowman Breakfast complete with Snowman Pancakes, Snowman Poop, a Snowman Donut Building Station and Snowman Mugs filled with Hot White Chocolate is just the ticket you need!

With just a few supplies that we found at Walmart and a couple recipes, we put together this adorable and really fun Snowman Breakfast. Even though it’s all really easy, there are a lot of different areas, so let’s break it down.

In the middle of the table, is the Snowman Poop…cute huh? The “poop” are just Vanilla Yogurt Raisins sitting in a paper box, I made the sign and yes…I made it printable for you!

The Snowmen mugs hold White Hot Chocolate. They started out as clear mugs, found in the housewares department for under $2 and I drew the Snowman’s face on with Sharpie markers.

Our original plan was to paint the face on the inside of the glass with candy melts, but we quickly realized that the Hot Chocolate would melt the candy and it wouldn’t show. So then I tried painting the face on the outside with candy melts, and although it worked out, it was taking a super long time, and you know…I like to share quick and easy ideas that you can duplicate easily. So the Sharpie markers it was…they worked perfectly and, they do wash off, just be sure you are drawing on glass.

The White Hot Chocolate is simply melted chocolate, I used Hershey’s Bliss and chopped them roughly, and milk, simmered on the stovetop. {recipe below}

The mugs of White Hot Chocolate were topped with a big spoonful of whipped topping and blue sprinkles added. On each of the plates were Snowman Pancakes, we used the same recipe we have been using for years…Old Fashioned Homemade Pancakes. They are light and fluffy with just the right flavor. Bacon for the Snowman’s scarf, chocolate chips for the eyes, and mini Reese’s pieces for the nose and buttons. And the Snowman is sitting in mini marshmallows.

The Snowman Donuts are probably the most popular. To keep the kiddos busy, we created a Snowman Building Station

Build a Donut Snowman Station

  • Body – Powered donuts
  • Scarf – Fruit Roll-up
  • Nose – Orange Gumdrop
  • Eyes – Reese’s pieces
  • Mouth – Jumbo Sprinkles
  • Hat – Tootsie Rolls and Rolo Candy
  • Straws or skewers {if the children are not too young}

Instructions

  1. Hat – unwrap a Tootsie Roll and heat in microwave for 5 seconds, mold with your fingers into a disk shape and immediately gently push the Rolo candy into the warm Tootsie Roll
  2. Scarf – unwrap Fruit Roll-up and cut strips for the scarf
  3. Body – gently push the powdered donuts onto the straw
  4. Face – add the gumdrop for the nose and gently push the eyes and mouth into the donut
  5. Add the hat with a small amount of corn syrup or frosting
  6. Tie the scarf around the snowman’s neck

Display everything so the kids can make their own. The sign is also printable if you are interested.

Now let’s chat about how we set the table. We found everything at Walmart, here is what we used…

  6. This is just brilliant!! I love all the details down to making the snowman mug!

  7. Juliana says:

  9. Denise says:

    This is such a cute and great idea! You are so creative! I don’t have little ones anymore but I could just imagine how much fun this would be! Thank you for sharing.

  10. Janet says:

    Just saw this on Pinterest. This is so stinking cute. I must do this for my grandchildren. You are one clever and special mom to think of ideas like this one for your family.

  11. Wendy says:

    You are an amazingly talented lady! I LOVE this and will be doing it for my beloved granddaughter on Sunday morning! I won’t be seeing her on Christmas day as she and her mommy and daddy are going to her mommy’s family this year (we take it in turns each year) but they will be over to stay on Saturday night to Sunday. I’m going to do this for her…we always get up in the morning together when she stays over, and she LOVES pancakes for breakfast, so I know she’s going to LOVE this! I love making things special for her! Thank you for sharing this!!

  12. I’m so in love with the Snowmen mugs!

    Your snowman table is absolutely ADORABLE Love the bacon scarf.. Can I come for breakfast too?

    The instructions and photos are great. Thanks, ESPECIALLY, for listing the snowman “parts” one by one vs spelling out the components in paragraph style. I always translate instructions exactly as you’ve done so you saved me a bunch of time. No point in trudging through a paragraph if you already know what some of the body parts are made of. Doing it the way you did today also makes for an easy shopping list.

    Listing the cost of each item also tells you up front if it’s do-able. This one definitely is. Sometimes when I’m making a dessert & start putting stuff in the cart I realize it’s going to cost way too much so have to put everything back, go home for another recipe & start all over. Big time waster.

    So – thanks on several levels. I can taste that white hot chocolate right now.

    Love the snowman mugs! Artistically gifted I am not but your mugs look simple enough that even I can do it. :-) Thank you for helping me get a start on gifts for next year. (If I do one mug a month, I will have all the mugs I need to get done finished by next winter. LOL). :-) Thank you for posting this fun and creative project!

  15. Kimberly says:

    I think the idea behind this is cute, but let’s be honest, this is loaded with sugar and carbs. The idea of the mugs is very cute, but why not just fill it with milk or better yet, almond milk? I realize not everyone is sugar conscious like I am, but I’m sure if you figured out how much each child was getting in sugar (in this 1 serving) it would be enough for a whole week! I’m not bashing your idea, you are very creative, but it is because of “breakfast” ideas like this why our children are obese and addicted to sugar. My thoughts are we shouldn’t eat anything our great great grandmothers wouldn’t have called food. None of these “food” ideas even existed in the 1800s (except the tiny strip of bacon and a variation of the pancake). More protein, less sugar. Cute mug idea though!

    • Liz says:

      I understand your concerns Kimberly. But this Snowman Breakfast is not meant to be eaten every day. Once a year or so is not going to hurt a child and the memories you are creating is far greater than the sugar for one day. And you can also change the food or drink, just use regular milk instead of hot chocolate, and serve yogurt as snow instead of marshmallows.

    • rd says:

      You say “My thoughts are we shouldn’t eat anything our great great grandmothers wouldn’t have called food”, yet, you claim that almond “milk” is better than REAL milk. If you didn’t like it, just run along and give your kids celery for breakfast.
