Thanks so much for inviting me on your fabulous blog today. I’m in pretty impressive company so I hope that I don’t embarrass myself! I’ve actually got a great and effective craft that you can make with children of all ages.
This is such a great craft for kids because it is easy and involves little mess. It’s certainly a lot less wet and cold than building an actual snowman.
Best of all it’s not complicated or expensive to replicate: all you need are a few white plastic spoons, permanent markers and little scraps to stick on your snowman. If you are nervous of glue then get buttons and gems that have adhesive backs!
I just put everything on the table, along with an example I made, and left my girls- 5 and 3- to it. I really love what they’ve come up with.
You could add a string or ribbon and hang these on a tree, poke them into the soil in plant pots to make your house plants look more festive, or add to gift wrapping for that personal touch to Granny’s Christmas gift.
Kelly is the face behind the vintage silhouette at Domestic Goddesque. She eats too much cookie dough to have a waist that small. She is a thirty-something Mother of two absurdly photogenic little girls, is married to her beloved DH and endures daily battles-of-will with the dog she refers to as the Wonder Hound. She likes to avoid housework as much as possible, preferring to bake, craft and drink cocktails. Sorry, did I say cocktails? I meant coffee. And nap. She likes to nap too. When not blogging, you can find her haunting Facebook for interesting snippets of gossip, or throwing her wit around the twittersphere. (She may have made that last bit up too: she’s not that funny.)
