These Snowman Sugar Cookies are the perfect Christmas project for kids! They get to make this super cute Christmas Cookie and they get to eat it too! These cookies are perfect for your Christmas Cookie Swap!
Snowman Sugar Cookies…yes, please! Who doesn’t love to decorate cookies? The answer…no one! Everyone loves to decorate cookies and then, the best part, eat them!! These Snowman Sugar cookies make a great craft with kids for Christmas and then an even better treat to enjoy later!
Food art or edible crafts are my total jam! People often ask what I blog about and I usually give two answers. One is I love to make cute things out of food. The other is that I am a Food Crafter. Either way, the bottom line is that I love to play with my food!
It is always fun to find an easy craft for kids, especially during the holiday school break. As much as we love a break from school, sometimes we can be searching for things to do!
If the weather is not ideal for playing in the snow, we are sometimes stuck inside all day. So crafts and games are super needed! (check out my post on great indoor activities for kids…these have saved me!)
So stuck inside or not, these cookies are a must for the holiday season. They are perfect for a Christmas Cookie Swap too! Grab a cute holiday tin here and your neighbors Christmas gift is done! Not to mention, just the aroma of cookies in the oven make everyone in a great mood!
Love snowmen? How about this Melted Snowman Chocolate Bark. This bark was inspired by Olaf from the Disney Movie Frozen (I just loved that guy!) and this bark is super easy and fun to make with kids!! If you get a minute check it out. It is really fun to bring to a holiday party!

How to Make Snowman Sugar Cookies
Bake the cookies per package directions (or you can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe!), let cool completely, and frost them.
Cut 3-4 inch pieces of the licorice and press one on the top half edge of each cookie.
Put a lifesaver on the end of each licorice piece so they look like earmuffs.
Place 2 eyes and an orange candy nose on each cookie.
Press 5-6 chocolate chips under the orange nose to look like a smiley face.
Cute and easy snowy day treat!
