Snowman Craft

Painting is always a favorite craft at the Grandkid's Christmas Day Camp. This project was inspired by my finding these wooden snowmen cutouts deeply discounted after Christmas last year. I made sure all of the parents knew we would be painting and for the children to bring older clothing just in case they painted themselves too.

The children first painted the body white, the arms were painted brown, and the hat was black. The children used sponge brushes and recycled baby food containers as a paint pot. I supplied Q-tips to dab into the black paint to create the eyes, mouth, and buttons. An orange marker was used to create the carrot nose. Once they were dry black cord was tied to the top for hanging and a Christmas Scarf was tied around their necks!
