    Hello! I am having my children decorate cocoa mugs for a bulletin board - but I can't think of any catchy phrases...any ideas? It can have anything to do with cocoa, winter, cold, hot, marshmallows, etc!

    Thanks!

    Do you know the snowman soup poem? Maybe you could do something along those lines...I'll look for my copy of the poem and post again.

    Here it is.

    Snowman Soup
    Was told you've been real 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, sip it slow.
    It's sure to do the trick!

    In case you don't know, the poem is usually attached to a mug or gift bag filled with a packet of hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, and a candy cane stirring stick.


    Here's a variation I found on the internet (just google snowman soup).

    When it's so cold that
    you holler and whoop,
    It's time to bring out
    the Snowman Soup!

    Pour the packet in a mug.
    Add the snowballs too.
    And throw in the kisses
    from the snowman to you.

    Now add some hot water
    and use the cane to stir it.
    Sip slowly and soon you'll
    feel the warm winter spirit!


    Cute idea for a bulletin board. I'll be watching for more "catchy phrase" suggestions.

    Thanks

    No, just their decorated mugs. It's a fairly small board. (2x3) Thank you for the snowman soup idea- that's cute!

    Our art will warm your heart

    Our mugs are as sweet as the cocoa that's in them

    Doesn't our work warm your heart?
