Browsing Pinterest, I came across the most adorable gift idea - a snowman kit by Make it Do. I had been looking for an idea for a home made gift I could take along for all the children who went on our Skiing holiday over Christmas, and this was perfect!
The carrot noses and bits of coal I made out of air-drying clay, then painted; the hats were just cheap Santa hats from Tesco and the scarves I cut from a fleece throw. The most complicated bit was the little drawstring bags! Although I may make felt top hats next time, if I can find black felt that is.
For a few days we didn't think
we the kids were going to get a chance to use their kits, as we had had beautiful sunny weather, and the snow on the ground just wasn't suitable for snowman building. But we needn't have feared, snow finally fell and building commenced.
