Here's a fun craft to do with kids this Winter. The kids will have fun picking out hats, gloves, and a scarf for their snowmen.
Here's what you will need:
- Foam in a variety of colors
- Markers-I use foam markers, they do not smudge off the foam
- Pipe cleaners
- Wiggly eyes
- Small hole punch (if you have one)
- Cardstock (for stencils)
I made my own stencils in a word document using clip art and shapes and then cut them out of some card stock. Cutting the foam can be a bit tedious. I used some volunteers to help cut trace and cut out the pieces.
I cut out all the foam pieces ahead of time. For the program I made a plate of hats, gloves, and scarves. The kids had a blast designing their snowmen and picking out colors.
For the arms I used two pieces of a pipe cleaner cut in quarters. Simply stick one end into the small hole on the snowman body made by a small whole punch or the tip of your scissors and fold the short end around to secure it in place.
I gave the kids markers to add designs to their snowman pieces and make a face.
Once the snowman is done, add a magnet to the back and you're done!
