I made the standard crispy rice treats, then the kids covered their hands in LOTS of butter and went to town making different kinds of "men" and creatures.
We used the following items for decorations:
+ hats - chocolate sandwich cookies & marshmallows dipped in melted chocolate chips
+ buttons & eyes - mini chocolate chips (nerds would be cute for a little more color)
+ scarves & mittens - fruit roll-up/tape (I only bought red, but there were many fun colors to choose from)
+ nose - marzipan (& food coloring)
+ arms - toothpicks (pretzel sticks were my original plan...but I forgot them while shopping)
the egg nog a bit too much!
Here's the complete collection of all our folks.
