Paper Plate Snowman

It's winter. There's snow on the ground, but you're just too lazy to spend 45 minutes to get your kids ready to go outside and make a real snowman. Instead you sit inside in the warmth and make a snowman at your kitchen table. And this snowman promises to be around long after the snow has melted.

For this project you will need:

  • 2 different sized paper plates
  • pipe cleaners
  • construction paper
  • an assortment of buttons, ribbons, pom-poms, googly eyes, and the like
  • a piece of scrap material
  • glue, scissors and a stapler

1) Mom: attach the head (sm. plate) to the body (large plate) using the stapler. (Don't worry, it will get covered up with the scarf).

2) Kids: design the snowman by adding a face and by decorating the body with the buttons and ribbons that are are provided.
