Do you send out Thank You cards for the presents your children receive at Christmas? It’s something I like to encourage mine to do. Today we’ve had a snowman production line on the go using our favourite material of the moment – cotton wool. You might have seen the earlier Snowman Pictures we made, or the shepherd’s nativity scene, but this time we went for a flat cotton pad rather than balls.
We used: white card, 2 cotton wool pads per snowman, black and orange felt tips, PVA glue and some silver sequins as snowflakes (left over from the Dove of Peace decorations).
I think the pictures are pretty much self-explanatory but I would say drawing on the cotton wool is a little tricky but easily solved if you stick with a ‘dot’ design.
My 3 year old managed hers all by herself so it’s a nice craft for preschoolers as well as older children.
Don’t you think they look jolly?
Let’s make this winter the year when we delight in the cold and the dark.
Gather your children, get cosy, and make memories and connections together.
I’ll show you how with this guide to a cosy and connected winter:
