Supplies

  • Blue construction paper or card stock
  • Cotton balls
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • 1 brown pipe cleaner
  • Green, black and orange felt
  • 2 googly eyes
  • 3 buttons
  • White 3-D paint

Instructions

  • Use the glue to "draw" three circles on the blue construction paper as an outline of your snowman.  Fill the circles in with glue.
  • Stick cotton balls in the glue circles to form your snowman.
  • Cut a pipe cleaner in half and glue them on either side of the middle circle.
  • Cut a pair of gloves out of the green felt for the snowman's mittens and glue over the pipe cleaners.
  • Cut a longer and shorter rectangle out of green felt.  Glue the longer rectangle over the "neck" of the snowman.  Glue the shorter rectangle over the longer one at a slight angle so that it looks like the scarf has been wrapped around the snowman.  Cut slits in the ends of the green rectangles.
  • Glue two eyes onto the snowman.
  • Cut a small triangle out of orange felt and glue into place under the eyes.
  • Cut a "C" shape out of black felt and glue into place under the nose as the snowman's mouth.
  • Cut a hat out of black felt and glue to the top of the snowman's head.  Add a strip of red ribbon in the middle of the hat.
  • Glue on 3 buttons.
  • Use white 3-D paint to add dots of snow to the background of your picture.
