Snowman Soup

I've used the Snowman Soup poem for years and given it to fellow teachers at Christmas. I thought it would be a great product for the craft fair in some cute container. When I saw Chris Twing's take on a cup carrier, I knew I had to made some. There are lots of ideas for containers and I wouldn't want to make all the same type, cause what would be the fun in that?
UPDATE Here are a couple versions of the poem and the ingredients.
When the weather outside is frightful,
Snowman Soup can be delightful.
May it warm your spirit and your soul.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
When you feel a chill or are saying "brrrr,"
Use the candy cane stick to stir.
Add hot water and sip it slow.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Was told that you've been 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.
Add hot water, stir it slow
It's sure to do the trick!

Ingredients for Snowman Soup
  • Hot Chocolate Mix
  • Marshmallows
  • Candy Cane
  • Hershey Kisses


  1. Hi Carole ! I'm not familiar with snowman soup, but these containers look great to give as a hostess gift at Christmas. Cute poem. You sure create a lot of different & pretty things ! Take care, Shirleyx

  2. Hi Shirley! So you haven't heard of reindeer poop either? I used to give it to all the kids in my class. I use chocolate covered peanuts. Even with 11 year olds, there was always one who was afraid to eat it! Then there's elf poop- M&Ms, Cupid poop, turkey poop, bunny poop... always cracks me up! I'll post more poems soon.

  3. Hey Carole, you've really been busy! When & where is the craft fair you're talking about? (Christmas @ O'dell Weeks maybe???) I want to be sure & come.

    1. Odell Weeks wants a ton of money to rent a space! We have some choices of smaller fairs, like the Knights of Columbus. In the meantime, we're busy making things. I'll let you know as soon as I have dates:)

  4. I have seen the snowman soup in little baggies, but this is awesome! I love it!

  5. This is so cute! I've seen the baggies too but his is so much cuter.

  6. Carole, I'm really enjoying all of your Christmas in July projects! You are going to sell a ton at the Craft Fair. This holder is awesome!!!

  7. Awesome way to give Snowman soup! Such a great gift !!!!
