So its been a little snowy outside and Henry has yet to actually get out in it and PLAY. He’s been outside, but it’s usually to help Dad shovel the driveway. And he doesn’t last too long. He’s a smart boy – he knows he’s cold and he just comes inside.
Anyhow – so I thought it was time to make a snowman. And since it’s really hard to get outside myself with a 3 month old. Henry and I made one out of marshmallows! I found this one over at No Time For Flash Cards again (I tell ya, that blog is AWESOME!).
I did most of the prep work – drew the snowman, face, buttons and arms.
I left the nose off and we just used a scrap piece of orange paper and cut a triangle – Henry glued it on all by himself (he LOVES that glue stick!).
Then I outlined the snowman in regular glue and Henry went to town adding the marshmallows. He followed the outline perfectly – I was quite shocked. He did like to smash the marshmallows to make them stay in their place.
We decided to add some snow to the bottom of the snowman with some cotton balls.
Henry loved to tear them up.
It’s now hanging proudly on my fridge (my favorite part of doing this).
This is another oldie craft back when the blog first started. I lost this one in my wordpress transfer last spring so I thought I’d repost it now so it’ll be included in the crafts!
