Snowmen in Africa

I went to the craft store to get the hot glue, felts,and other items I needed for the snowmen project I wanted to do with Nani and Zoey. I quickly ran by the fabric store and picked up some materials for the scarfs and hats of the snowmen...
No not really... It goes more like this; I looked for some old kids socks for hats and used my dust rag for a scarf. I found some black wire from headphones that don't work, for the making of the mouth. Thanks to the Nelson's package I had wrap that would be the snowman's body color and styrofoam chips to use for filling of the hats. The nose was the hardest as marker didn't work on the foam, but I found a jello box in my kitchen that was orange... Needless to say there was no hot glue, nor felt to use, but as a team the girls and I succeeded in making these good looking snowmen. Topped off with powdered sugar it looks like it really snowed (I just pray the ants won't be attracted to it!!!)


All snowmen are made by Nani and Zoey and are now on display in our livingroom!
