It has been so cold here in Utah and it seems like everyone I know has been sick. The kids and I have been indoors A LOT lately – which can wear a lot on the mamma and the kids. Since my kids are getting a bit older I have started to make more little crafts with them to add variety to our day. One of our most recent crafts were these little cotton ball snowmen.
The little snowmen were so easy to make and turned out so cute and the most important thing is that my kids had a blast making them! I started out tracing three different sized bowls and cups onto white cardstock and cut them out. Then I glued them together for the form of the snowman. Using elmer’s glue I made a ton of dots all over the snowman and let the kids put a cotton ball on each dot.
Using paper scraps, ribbon and buttons we made eyes, noses, mouths, arms, hats and other fun embellishments. I helped my two-year old make hers, but my three year old son put his stuff on himself. I would add the glue and he did the rest. They aren’t perfect by any means but I think they are darling and will probably keep them forever!!
How could I not!!!???
