We had a "Super Saturday" craft day at church last month and I signed up to make a snowman kit. They supplied an example and I don't know if the woman came up with this design herself or copied it but I thought it was very cute. We sculpted eyes, coal (for the mouth), a carrot nose and three buttons out of sculpey clay. Then we attached dowls to the back of each piece and baked them in the oven. I'll just add a scarf and hat and we'll be set when snowman season comes. It's snowing today but there's not enough on the ground for playing the in the snow just yet. Here are my finished pieces stuck into cardboard. When we build our snowman, I'll post an updated picture.
Added December 12th: We've had a few weeks of snow so here's our snowman put together. Now I just need to find a good hat.
