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.
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?
