A Sunday Snowman Art Project

Since we haven't had enough snow to even attempt a small snowman I thought we would make one today as an art activity.  Inspired by a pinterest pin I saw I gathered the following supplies:

  • light blue construction paper
  • Elmer's glue
  • mini marshmallows
  • Felt scraps that I cut into a hat, scarf, mouth, carrot nose, and twig arms
  • Black beads
  • Googly eyes
  • white paint
  • Glitter glue pen
  • crayons (we ended up not using these)
I really liked this because it was so easy for Ava to do.  She helped me do the glue but then was able to do the rest independently. 

 More supplies
 and some glue............I forgot to take a group picture of the supplies so I got some quick ones before we started.  I forgot the little jar of beads, felt, etc.
 Putting the marshmallows on

 His body has been formed (he is Frosty the Snowman according to Ava)
 Putting on beads

Now that Frosty is done it's time for some snow.
 Happy girl (who is still is her pjs)

 She added some glitter glue and ta-da he is done.

He is now drying so we can put him on the fridge.  I have a feeling he will need to go up a bit higher so a certain fat beagle doesn't have him for a snack.
