Goldfish crackers are a favorite snack around our house, and I’m thrilled to be partnering with Goldfish and Socialstars over the next year to bring you some fun crafts and activities. As always, all photos and opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that make Lines Across possible! #GoldfishCrowd
The holidays are an especially busy time for everyone, but especially for me as a blogger. However, since so much of the work I do is creative, I’m able to spend time with my older kids while we work on projects together. They love it when I make little things for them, like these cute and simple snowman snack cups. Benjamin (6) and Lyla (4) snack on a snowman full of Goldfish snacks while we color together, paint with watercolors, and make Christmas ornaments.
What you need:
1. Small White plastic cups
2. Black and orange permanent markers
3. Goldfish snacks
What you do:
1. Start by using a black permanent marker to draw the snowman’s eyes. I created a test cup first to try out a few different designs.
2. Next, draw the carrot nose at an angle.
3. Add little dots for the smile.
4. Add three medium sized black dots for buttons.
Tip: If you are making a lot of these for a party or group of kids and want them to all look alike, I would recommend creating a little assembly line. Draw the eyes on all of the cups, then the carrots, then the smile, then the buttons.
These little snowman snack cups are becoming a holiday crafting tradition at our house. I think I’ll also make some, fill them with Goldfish crackers, and take them to my daughter’s preschool to surprise her and her class. Another great thing about this project is that it’s so simple and quick that you could make enough for a whole class or party in about 15 minutes.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably already familiar with my watercolor obsession. And I love taking silly and fun pictures! So of course I had to pretend this little guy was an artist painting away.
