  • Cardstock
  • Felt (You could use paper too!)
  • Beads
  • Floor protector pads for furniture

  • Tweezers (*Optional, but they are awesome for putting the beads into the glue!)

We always find these items helpful too:

  • Smock
  • Craft tray

Directions

  • Don your smock.  If you are working with a group, we suggest cutting each of the protector pad sheets into individual pieces as shown below.  (For easier access!)  You may want to put out the rest of the supplies in several trays between the kids.  We used fabric glue, but white, craft glue would most likely work too!

FloorProtectorPads

  • Peel your protectors off their paper and make the main body of the snowperson.

  • Using your felt, cut out any decorative features for your snowperson and glue on your beads to create eyes, buttons, jewellery etc..

  • Allow your snow people to dry overnight and write a note in the inside!  (If you went with the black background as we did, use metallic pens to write your message!)
