Snowman Crafts

 

Glitter snow globes
Get some baby food jars. Glue a small plastic snowman or other figure to the inside of the jar with waterproof adhesive. Let it dry. Fill the jar with water. Add glitter. Use plastic shavings as "snow." Fasten the lid. Melt some wax to seal the lid or use hot glue. Vary the globes by changing the figures & colors of glitter.


Snow person
Put a jar lid in the toe of a sock. Crumple newspaper into three balls. Put the largest one in the sock on top of the lid. Tie string around the sock above the ball. Add the other balls, tying string above each one. Cut off the rest of the sock above the last piece of string. To make a hat brim, trace around a water glass onto paper. Cut out the circle. Set an empty film canister in the center of the circle and trace around it. Cut out the small circle to form a ring. Slide the paper ring over the canister and tape it in place. Glue the hat over the cut end of the sock. Glue on button eyes and buttons on the body. For a scarf, tie a fabric strip around the neck. Place twig arms under it. Glue on a sequin mouth. Glue on a button nose.


Snowballs
Take a styrofoam ball and place on an egg carton or other stand to prevent rolling. Paint the surface that is showing with thinned white glue. Then put white and blue tissue paper squares into the glue. Sprinkle sparkles sparingly. Then turn the ball over and complete the other side with glitter, stickers, paint, or small candies.


Sparkle Snow people
Snowmen can be painted using a mixture of white glue, water, and paint and then sprinkled with sparkles to let dry. Creates an interesting effect.


Doily Snow People
One Large Doily for body, One Small Doily for head, One Small Doily, cut in half for arms, black construction paper for eyes, 3 buttons and mouth. Glue to colored construction paper.


Snow
Make snow paintings using Ivory soap snow (1 cup Ivory Snow powder and 3/4 cup water). Have the children help mix this up using hand beaters & then paint on black paper with small brushes.


Snow people
Make snow people out of white toilet paper tubes...cut them into sections & then the children can glue 2 or 3 sections together to make a snowmen...add buttons for eyes or what ever, yard for a scarf, etc...


Snowman Kit
Include in a cute bag 2 charcoals (for eyes)--can put in baggie, plastic or wood carrot for nose, and a cute pipe and scarf if you like. Receiver can use this kit to make a snowman--unless living in the south, lol. Here is poem to go with kit:
There is nothing like a snowman
To make a person smile.
His eyes of coal, his carrot nose,
His pipe with so much style.
We all have special memories
Of fun in the snow and slush
And this will be renewed

With a little help from us!
