This charming little snowman comes complete with a Christmas present. Make several and have a snowman party puppet show!
To make this project a little simpler for smaller children, simply leave out the present and even the arms.
You may substitute the toothpick by using a piece of craft foam or felt if you are worried about the pointed edge.
Use whatever colors you like for this project. Our colors are simply suggestions.
Trim the egg carton cups and paint them white. Let dry.
Paint the craft stick white and let dry.
Glue a blue button to the center of an egg cup, repeat with a second egg cup.
Use a scruffy paint brush or cotton swap to dab on pink cheeks to the remaining egg cup.
Cut orange toothpick in half and glue sideways to the center of the egg cup.
Glue head and two body pieces to the white craft stick, leaving enough of the craft stick at the bottom to use as a handle.
Trim a small amount of the green chenille stem, just enough to fit on top of the head for the ear muff band.
Trim one side flat on each pom pom, glue the flat side to the egg cup as ear muffs.
Wrap scrap of fabric or sock around the neck of the snowman and glue in place. Use scissors to fringe the ends of the scarf.
Cut a small rectangle from the cardboard and paint it green, let dry.
Cut the brown chenille stem in three sections. Set one section aside for a future project. Use remaining two as the snowman’s arms. Glue to the craft stick, underneath the egg cup. Bend at the “elbow”.
Trim silver ribbon and glue onto green painted cardboard to make a present. Glue in a plus sign fashion. Tie a ribbon from silver ribbon and glue to the top.
Glue the present to the front of the snowman, gluing onto the bottom of the middle egg cup and the top of the bottom egg cup.
Position the arms so that the “hands” are behind the present, glue in place.
Use the handle end of a small paint brush to dip into black paint and dot on eyes and mouth.
