Soapy Snowmen

We are going to be having some fun with snowmen in our classroom during the next few weeks.  We have some projects planned but you might want to try this one at home.  When I finally get my Christmas decorations put away, I put out my snowmen decor.  The two snowmen in the photo I made with my boys AGES ago and they are still in great condition.  I think they are super cute.

This is an idea from Family Fun magazine.  For the complete instructions

Our scarves are made out of material scraps. 

Since it is too cold to make snowmen outside, why not try to make some inside!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
