At last count, today we have had 6 inches of snow. So, it was time to go outside for sledding, snow angels, snow eating and building a snowman.
After that, we came inside to warm up with some hot chocolate and popcorn. We used our Snowman Marshmallow Dispenser too.
Finally, a snowman craft. I got inspiration from Happy Home Fairy who has a number of both snowman and snowflake crafts posted.
* Cotton Balls
* Googly Eyes
* Q- Tips
* White Paint
* Paper Plate to pour glue & paint
Let me first say that it takes all my self control to let my children have their own artistic bent on my crafts. For blogging and display I would love the cute little fingerprints and googly eyes that weren’t huge and buttons that were in the right place. I had to let it go because Kenzie wanted crazy big eyes with no mouth and Abby wanted her snowman in a blizzard. So, it’s definitely their creations.
First, I drew out three balls in the shape of the snowman. With the Q-Tip, I had them spread the glue and then pull the cotton apart to stick on the snowman. I then had them choose their buttons, eyes, pre-cut hat and arms. After all that was glued down they were able to dip their fingers in white paint and create the snow.
