This is a terrific recycled ornament. The snowmen are made from those baby socks that never really get dirty or wear out. A kindergartner can do this with help, but in a group this craft is really better for older kids.
Don't have batting? Use old nylon stockings or cotton.
Fill the foot of a white baby sock with batting. Tie shut just above the ankle with string. Trim off the cuff.
Divide the sock ball into body and head by tying a strip of fabric or ribbon (the scarf) around the sock.
To make the hat, gather the colored sock together at the ankle and tie with string. Leave enough string for a hanging loop. Cut off the foot. Roll up the edge of the sock like a stocking cap. Glue or sew on the hat.
Next, glue or sew on buttons. Draw on the eyes and mouth with markers. Cut a 1-inch piece of pipe cleaner and poke it in for the nose. For earmuffs, wrap a piece of pipe cleaner around the head and tuck the ends under the hat rim. Glue on pompons.
