Create a Snow Person



Lately, we've been in survival mode taking care of a newborn and two older siblings, so the older children have been spending way too much time with their electronics. So when the baby was asleep the other day, I quickly threw together a quick creative craft- making snow people! The girls had a lot of fun and Mom and Dad decided to get our creative juices flowing as well. The kids also enjoyed spending this time with us.

To make snow people with your family, you will need the following:

Materials:
White paper
Glue
A variety of craft materials
Scissors
Circular containers to trace
Markers/crayons

Directions:
Using different sized circular containers, trace 3 different sized circles. Cut out for younger children. Older children can cut out their circles.

Have your child glue the circles together to create a snowman.

Next, have your child use a variety of craft materials to decorate their snow person. Encourage creativity by brainstorming ideas for their snow person- ballerina, football player, mother, etc.
