S is for Cottonball "Snowman"

Activity: Cotton Ball Snowmen

-blue construction paper (background)
-cotton balls
-2 small googly eyes
-4 buttons (1 for nose & 3 for accessories)
-1 brown pipe cleaner (hands)
- 1 red pipe cleaner (mouth)
-black hat cut-out (we used construction paper)
- red scarf (we used foam)
-white crayon, paint or snowflake stickers

Prep - Before you begin making your snowman cut out 1 red scarf, and 1 black hat. Cut a small piece of red pipe cleaner for mouth. Cut brown pipe cleaner in half and then each piece in half again. I piece will be the arm and the other piece will be twisted and tied around the tip to create a branch/twig look for the hands. I find it easier to have these things ready when working with younger children so they just move right through the activity.

Step 1: Use glue to make 3 circles for the snowman's body on blue construction paper - I pre-made the snowman's body in pencil and the girls just went over it with their glue.

Step 2: cover the snowman's body completely with cotton balls

Step 3: glue hat on snowman's head

Step 4: add button for nose

Step 5: add 3 buttons on body

Step 6: glue pipe cleaner arms on either side of the middle circle

Step 7: add googly eyes, and mouth

Step 8: glue scarf onto snowman's neck

Step 8:  (optional) draw falling snow with white crayon or paint or attach stickers

Behold your adorable Cottonball Snowman!

  5. So cool! thanks for the idea! It is good that you can look on the Internet what to do with children. But what to cook for dinner, we advise each other with a friend in U LIVE . We live in different countries and every Friday we exchange recipes of national cuisines. It is very tasty and unusual, be sure to try to cook something from traditional recipes from different cuisines of the world.
