Snowman

Post by Sierra on Fri Oct 19, 2012 4:12 am

What do you do with all the single socks which have somehow lost their mates in the dryer? Make a family of snowmen, of course! This craft project uses things found around the house, and is a great boredom buster during the looong winter holiday break.

Use a variety of sizes to make a Snow Family. The bigger the sock, the bigger the snowman. We used buttons, felt, sequins and feathers, but you can use anything you find around the house.

You can also use colored socks to make other people, gluing branches, pencils, or pipe cleaners on the sides for arms. Green socks make cute Martians, while pink make princesses with a little yellow yarn added for hair. Give your kids a bunch of trim and let their imaginations run wild.

Make sure to take pictures of your two families together for a cute holiday photo.

Supplies

White Tube Sock

Rice

Rubber Bands

A vaeiety of trim for decorations

Glue

NSTRUCTIONS

- Take tube sock and fill the bottom with rice. Secure with a rubber band. The more rice you use the bigger the bottom section of your snowman.

- Repeat the first step two more times to make the middle section and head of the snowman. Make sure not to fill above the cuff of the sock.

- Fold over the top cuff stretching it out a bit to make the snowman's hat.

- Decorate your snowman by gluing on various trim.



Sierra I love you
