Sock snowmen February 27, 2012

You will need:

  • 1 old white sock (hopefully still white)
  • Rice or other filler
  • 2 old colorful socks
  • Scissors 
  • Hot glue 
  • Rubber  bands
  • Buttons, beads, google eyes
  • Yarn, string, or ribbon

I stumbled on this nifty idea while browsing Pinterest for the first time – I LOVE that place!  You can find the step by step instructions on this site:

As you can see her snowmen are absolutely adorable! I decided to make the kid friendly recycle friendly version. Our lovely snowpeople were made by my 7 year-old son and 5 year-old daughter using random socks found in our drawers, whatever rice we had in the cupboard, and the supplies in our craft box. We had a blast putting them together and did it in about 20 minutes!
