How To: Do a cotton ball snowman kid's project

Do a cotton ball snowman kid's project

Shelley Lovett from ChildCare shows us how to make a cotton ball snowman. This is a great activity for developing fine motor skills. The snowman comes in a several variations, there is a snowman that has circles on its tummy so that children would have to try and place the cotton balls inside the circles. There is a snowman that comes in black and white so that the children could decorate the snowman's scarf, mittens and hat. Now on the plain tummy snowman, you'd just apply glue all over the tummy and start placing cotton balls but on the snowman with circles on it, you'd have to apply the glue in the center of each circle and then place the cotton ball over it so that it stays inside the circle. After all the balls have been attached a hole is made in the snowman's hat and a ribbon or yarn is put through it in order to hang the snowman anywhere you want. This is a great activity for places where there isn't a lot of snow.

I looked at your website (LOTS of great ideas!) but I didnt find the print out for this particular project. I am always looking for fun things to do with my kids over the Christmas break :) thanks
