A little bit of snow to dress up your hair– this activity gets children using tiny items to further develop their fine motor skills. Materials Felt (We used white and a tiny piece of orange) Thread or embroidery floss Needle Fabric scissors Small beads Fabric glue Elastic headband (You can purchase these at dollar or drug stores) Cardboard Smock Directions Cut three circles out of your white felt- one small, one medium and one large. Sew on beads for eyes, buttons etc. Be creative- make a necklace for your snow person or a hat! Add a small orange carrot nose from felt. We decided to sew a little border around each of the elements along with around the balls to practise our sewing skills with thread. Put your elastic headband over a piece of cardboard to hold it taut. Don your smock and put fabric glue along your headband where you would like your snow person to be. Attach your snowballs in ascending order. Allow to dry overnight. Give your headband to a friend! Purpose Developing fine motor skills. Taking a basic idea and extending it. Safety Notes Use a needle and fabric scissors with adult supervision. Be sure to wear a smock when using fabric glue so as to protect your clothes.
