Your family can turn 3 round boxes into a frosty-looking indoor friend that will last long after any traces of a winter wonderland have melted away. At the end of the season, the snowman parts nest inside the largest box for storage.
Use the white acrylic paint to coat the 3 boxes. Let the paint dry, then use hot glue or tacky glue to attach a button mouth and eyes to the smallest box and a row of large buttons to each of the 2 larger boxes, leaving room for the box tops.
Cut a tapered section from an orange bumpy pipe cleaner and glue it in place for a nose.
For hands, tape the mittens to the ends of a 21⁄2-foot string and tuck the center portion of the string inside the medium-size box before putting on the lid.
Stack the boxes, then dress your snowman with the hat and a scarf made from a scrap of cloth.
