Last week when I was assigned to teach the letter "S" to Big Brother's preschool class, I had found this great snowman craft to do. Big Bro finished & brought a snowman home last week. Since Little Bro and my Sweet Niece hadn't, well then, they could make one today! After all, I had all the material on hand. We did have to wait till the two youngest children were taking naps. The kids really enjoyed this craft, so I thought I'd share.
Materials you will need:
(Love Little Bro's face in this one...he was screaming "CHEEEEEESE!" Yes,his shirt is about ten sizes too big for him, but it's a "work" shirt like Daddy's and he had to wear it. Gotta pick your battles!)
- Blue Construction Paper
- Cotton Balls
- Pip Cleaners, sticks, or anything that would work for the Snowman's arms
- Googly Eyes
- Black Felt, Orange Felt, and whatever color you would like for the Snowman's scarf & mittens
- Buttons, Little Puffs, or anything that could work on the Snowman for buttons
- Glue, Scissors
- And of course, several eager children
Make your snowman by drawing circles using glue and then covering the glue with cotton balls.
Then, adorn it with a hat, gloves, scarf, arms, eyes, nose, mouth and buttons.
(Could my niece be any cuter?)
Finally, hang up your snowman for a cute winter decoration!
