an activity for school-age:
Create a fun snowman companion!

before you begin:
Gather the art supplies needed: butcher paper, wiggly eyes, pipe cleaners, a wood sample block, a few sticks, a glue gun, ribbon or fabric, markers, black felt or buttons.

activity goals:
To create a fun winter character for holiday dramatic play.

If a glue gun is not available, or if you choose not to use one around children, you may use a stapler, duct tape or washable glue to attack items to your snowpal.

let's get started

step 1
Crumple up a couple large sheets of butcher paper, or stuff two white paper bags with materials such as old scrap paper.
step 2
Using a glue gun, glue one body piece to a wood block. Then, glue the second body piece on top of the first.
step 3
Cut buttons, eyebrows, a nose and a mouth out of felt.
step 4
Glue each piece onto the snowpal where desired. Add sticks for arms, ribbon for a scarf and pipe cleaners for hair.
