I may look like a flake (no pun) for doing a snowman craft right in the middle of the Valentine’s day season. But the kid just had a big (fake)snow day at school and we are part of a cool bloghop brought to you a bunch of amazing bloggers.
So here is our one and only snowman craft for the season. I figure there are many places where it is in the middle of snow season.

- Cotton rounds (2 sizes)
I used 2 sizes of cotton rounds and just cut the larger one to make the middle circle. I cut out a small hat using a cotton round and Big A colored it in.
We then aligned the snowman circles ( good exercise) on a blue construction paper and glued the circles and the hat on. Big A also drew the eyes and the hands for the snowman. I drew a small mouth and she glued on beads on the line (again, good exercise)
She glued on pom poms for buttons and a red felt cloth for the scarf. My toddler girl also sporadically participated in the activity
To turn the snowman craft into a winter scene, she shredded the cotton rounds and stuck the cotton on the bottom and liberally applied white glitter on the top.
Tada! Here are our snowmen, a toddler and a pre schooler version.
