Winter Snowman String Cheese Idea
When it comes to meal time, all three of my kids are just now super picky. One will not eat meat, the other hates greens, and the last will not touch mashed potatoes. It has been an incredibly difficult hurdle to endure as a parent who loves nothing more than to make homemade meals. Since I refuse to make separate meals for my kids I provide them healthy snack choices throughout the day to get them their nutrition.
Honestly, I am just about at my wits end these days, I provide my children, and son in particular several nutritious, and responsible snacks throughout the day. It is so funny because he loves fruits, carrots, granola, and his favorite is string cheese. Each week I buy my kids Disney® Frozen String Cheese because they love the characters. We find it in the packaged cheese section of our local Shaw’s Supermarket, and it is priced right. When my kids first spotted their favorite characters on the package, they were excited to buy them.
My son’s typical snacking habits includes two healthy snacks after breakfast, one healthy snack after lunch, and a treat after dinner. Disney® Frozen String Cheese is perfect for snacking because it is so convenient, and fun. Rather than just enjoying a piece of regular cheese, my son can slowly pull away at the soft stick which he loves. Even I admit that it is pretty gratifying to eat the creamy, soft cheese. Plus, they are made with whole milk and are a great source of nutrients like calcium and protein.
Since I am that Pinterest mom (on some days) I like to always jazz up my kid’s lunchboxes with at least one unique touch whether it be a special printed napkin, face on banana, note, or face on their string cheese. I thought since the weather is getting super cold these days, I would draw some simple snowman faces on the back of their Disney® Frozen String Cheese.
I started out making a simple button and carrot faced snowman, and then I was like why not try my hand at making Olaf’s face? It couldn’t be that hard right? Thankfully, my kids are extremely forgiving when it comes to my artistic skills (or lack thereof).
Here is what you will need:
- 1 bag of Disney® Frozen String Cheese
- 1 fine tip permanent black marker
- 1 orange maker-use permanent for BEST results (I found that out the hard way)
- 1 napkin to wipe away any moisture.
After opening your string cheese package, wipe each off if there is any condensation on them or excess moisture.
Take your fine tip permanent black marker and draw the button eyes, mouth, and buttons. If you are drawing Olaf, use the back of the Disney® Frozen String Cheese as a guide.
Draw your carrot nose on with your orange marker, again permanent marker will work best from experience. Washable will work, but it requires several coats.
Allow them to dry, and place them back into the package.
Your kids will be sure to LOVE the added personal touch on the back of their string cheese packages!
