- Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
- Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)
The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.
- White Sock
- Craft Glue or Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Fill the sock about 2/3 full with rice. Use the yarn and tie the sock closed about 1-inch above the rice. Divide the rice filled section of the sock almost in half. You will want the section closest to the top to be a bit smaller. This will be the snowman's head. Tie a piece of yarn tightly around the sock where you divided into 2 sections.
Roll or fold down the top, empty half of the sock so it looks like a hat. Now, you can use a variety of craft supplies to decorate your snowman!
You can glue a large pom-pom on the top of the hat. Use a piece of felt or scrap fabric and cut out a scarf shape. You can give him eyes, a carrot nose (chenille stems or felt works well), mouth, buttons, etc. Use wiggle eyes, beads, smaller pom-poms, buttons, scrap felt, or anything else you have on hand.
