Last week we read another cute snowman story called “All You Need for a Snowman” by Alice Schertle. This story follows a group of kids out playing in the snow. They begin building a snowman when one little snowflake falls from the sky. Piece by piece they add to the snowman until he is all decked out! It is a great little story with wonderful illustrations.
For our project we constructed a snowman of our own (inside – since at that time there was no snow here).
We started with a toilet paper roll. Will painted it with white craft paint.
The next day, after the paint dried, we added all the details. I hole-punched a hole near the top on either side of the tube. I strung a pipe cleaner through to make the band of the earmuffs. Then we glued on the sparkley pom-poms to each side (covering the holes). We added buttons, wiggly eye, a paper carrot nose and drew on the smile with a black pen.
We added it to our winter decorations in the dining area at home. This was a fun little project!
