Do you want to make a snowman? How about sock snowman?
This snowman is one that I have made with hundreds of students throughout my years of teaching. It is an easy parent-child craft project for the holidays. This craft project encourages creativity of both parents and children, yet is made with some simple materials and takes just a few minutes. Create a treasured keepsake that you will have for years to come!
- a clean white sock (I like these Dickies crew socks because they are entirely white.)
- 1 cup of rice
- an elastic/rubber band
- Polyfill stuffing
- decorations including buttons, bells, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, Sharpie marker, fabric scraps, and felt.
- glue or glue gun
- Fill the sock with one cups of rice to create a base for your snowman.
- Fill the sock with Polyfill stuffing until desired size.
- Use the rubber band to secure the top of the snowman.
- Cut of some of the excess sock and then cuff to create part of the hat.
- Decorate as desired.
My daughter, Elisabeth, and I had fun with this snowman. She made a carrot nose with an orange piece of pipe cleaner and used eyes to create the face. She finished by drawing a mouth, using a Sharpie marker.
We made a scarf with some plaid fabric scraps and she even fringed the ends! The hat was made by just gluing some felt into the cuffed part. A bell was added for a festive detail.
We used a glue gun because it is quick, easy, and dries clear. This part is something that the adults should definitely do. Be careful! The glue gets very hot!
I hope you want to make a snowman! Create some memories and enjoy some time crafting with you children!
