Winter is here and I wanted to share a quick craft you can make with your kids. A Snowman!! Or Snow Girl in this case! What better craft to do with the kids while it's freezing outside. We haven't had any snow yet here in NC, so I thought we would make our own Snowman! Fingers crossed we get some snow soon!
For this craft you’re going to need:
- Foam Balls
- Foam Connector
- Metal Fasteners
- Pipe Cleaners
- Pom Pom Balls
- Paper Straws
- Hot Glue
Step 1 - Create Body
For the body I used two size foam balls. I cut a flat spot on the bottom ball so that our snowman could sit properly.
I connected the foam balls with a foam connector. It worked perfectly!
Step 2 - Add Face and Buttons
Now that we have our body together, now let's add our face and buttons. For this snowman I used metal fasteners, they are so easy to just push right into the foam. Once I added them, I just painted on my colors!
Step 3 - Make Earmuffs
Time to make our earmuffs!
I found two pipe cleaners and twisted them together, then cut to fit the size of our snowman's head. Then I hot glued my pom pom balls on the sides. Next I hot glued our cute little earmuffs on the head.
To finished off our snowman, I cut a paper straw for the arms and drew out my mittens on cardstock. Then used some orange felt for the nose.
Add a fun decorative scarf with some felt too! Then your finished!
I really like the idea of making a snow girl! With three boys I rarely get to work on "girly" crafts. So I was excited. This is a perfect craft to keep your little one's busy on those cold winter days. You can get as creative as you want with your snowman!
