These Paint Stick Snowmen are a great way to use up little scraps and whatever bits & bobs you have around the house. Don't worry if you don't have these exact supplies. Just use what you have. My 6-year-olds loved this simple craft!
- jumbo paint stick/stirrer
- wooden craft stick or tongue depressor (hat brim)
- white and black craft paint
- scrap of fabric or fleece
- orange foam for nose
- craft glue
- spray sealer
- buttons (optional, you can just paint them on)
Give the paint stirrer a coat of white paint.
When dry, paint the top of the paint stirrer black (for the hat) and paint the craft stick black. Glue the hat brim to the paint stirrer.
Use the end of the paint brush, dipped in black paint, to dot eyes, buttons, etc. unless you'd prefer to glue on real buttons.
Cut a small triangle of orange foam for the carrot nose and glue on.
Spray with sealer to protect from wet weather. After sealing, tie on a strip of fabric or fleece as a scarf, and secure with a few drops of glue.
