Create these fun kits to have on hand for cheap family fun due to an impromptu school cancellation/snow day!
When I was a kid my mother created these adorably fabulous Snowman Kits using wooden dowels and wooden cut outs resembling buttons, carrot nose, googly eyes, etc. Each piece resembled a "Mr. Potato Head" style piece containing a small dowel end for sticking into the snowman.
Your kit doesn't need to be that elaborate, here's a simple, do it yourself snowman repair kit that will have the kids playing outside for hours . . .
Add the Following to a Mason Jar or Small Box (You could decorate the box with decoupage christmas scenes!)
A black plastic or Felt hat- (Dollar store!)
2 googly eyes - the bigger the better
3 Large Black buttons (You can get large wooden buttons at any craft store)
a strip of fabric (for a scarf), cut a few strips at each end for "wisps"
a couple of small twigs (For Arms, of course)
a twig painted orange (for Nose)
Glitter- if desired to make your snowman sparkle in the sunshine
Snowman Repair Kit
- Print out the following poem and attach it to the snowman repair kit
Being outside all day and night,
Can make me look a dreadful sight.
I melt, I break, I lose some parts,
Which tends to break some people's hearts,
So here's a repair kit just for you
To make your snowman look brand new!
Enjoy! We would LOVE
