Are you enjoying holiday music this month? How about a SNOW-perfect ornament to make the season a little merrier!?! Gather your materials and get started this weekend! ! The supply list is simple. Take a look and practice a few language skills along the way too: naming words (nouns: stick, paint, buttons, snowman, etc.) , name your snowmen/women, create stories about how they got so thin, etc.
Thick Popsicle/craft sticks
White Paint (Acrylic)
beads or buttons for emblishments
Scissors to cut material
scrap materials for scarf
wiggly eyes (optional)
Markers (fine point)
Orange construction paper
To get started, have your children paint their Popsicle sticks white (one side only/unless you just prefer both sides to be painted). Allow the sticks to dry. Cut out mini scarfs and get other embellishments; buttons, nose, etc. ready. Leave plenty of room for the snowman’s face. Attach the scarf with a little hot glue. Next, attach the buttons and construction paper nose. Then, let your child add his/her own facial expression to the snowman (mouth and eyes). Write your child’s name and date on the back (or have them do it). Attach the ribbon with a little hot glue on the back of the stick. Now, your child will have another homemade simple craft to add to their personal Christmas tree.
Oh! Look at those snowmen dance among the lights so bright!
