Snowman Footprints

Holiday Cheer is Here!
We're on break again...holiday break!  This time of year has craft-making written ALL over it!  We're going to periodically post some holiday fun for your smartypants, and hope you'll join along!

Snowman Footprints
I found a similar project like this on our FAVORITE website, www.pinterest.com, and just tweaked a few things...because my boys were sick and I had to come up with things that were readily available in the craft closet. :)

What you'll need...
  • large piece of card stock- any color you'd like!
  • white paint
  • googly eyes
  • orange paper for the nose
  • black sharpie
  • pom poms, chenille stems, ribbon, etc. to decorate your snowman
  • glue
What you'll do:
Help your little smartypants paint their foot with white paint, and make a footprint onto the card stock.  I let each print dry before moving on to the next little footsie.  After all the feet have been made and dried, help them paint the snowflakes, and snowfall on the ground.  When the snow has dried, the decorations begin!  I just whipped out everything from my craft closet and started having my little smartypants pick out their snowman's attire and glueing it on.  Use a black sharpie to draw in their arms and smile.  Use orange construction paper to cut out a triangle for the nose. Done! I think they look dashing. ;)

Christmas Countdown!
