Cotton Wool Snowmen ~ Crafting With Kids
Is there anything worse for a kid than waking up to find all the snow has melted?
The poor tinkers woke up yesterday to find the snow had melted, not very helpful when you MUST make a snow man and snow angles.
stupid resourceful mama that I am I thought they could make some snowmen indoors using a few bits and bobs, not as good as the real thing but they got covered in glue which seemed to make them laugh, so it’s all good.
Want to make some of your own, snowmen not twins?
I cut noses and scarves out of felt.
On each piece of paper we drew the outline of a snowman.
The boys then used the glue to stick cotton wool balls inside the snowman outline.
The used the cotton buds to apply glue to the felt nose and scarf, then stuck them in place.
The boys then chose some buttons for eyes and stuck those to the snowmen.
I must admit, the snowmen look a little freakoid scary to me, but the boys are very impressed with their efforts!
Fingers crossed Spring makes a return soon, because as much as I love the snow, I’m pretty pissed off that the flowers which had just bloomed have wilted!
