Snowman fun

If you have youngsters at home these school holidays then why not have them build a snowman?

We made this cute little snowman, imaginatively called Olaf, with stuff we had lying around, making it a fun, low-cost activity.

You will need:

- White plastic spoon.

- Scrap of orange craft foam, felt or card (we used a sticky note!).

- Scrap of black or other coloured craft foam, felt, card or paper.

- Felt material or ribbon for a scarf if you want.

- Black beads, stickers and a marker pen in black.

- PVA glue


- Cut a nose shape out of the orange material or card.

- Cut a hat shape out of the black / other coloured material.

- Using small amounts of glue, attach in place on your white spoon.

- If you are using beads or stickers for the eyes, carefully glue them in place.

- Otherwise draw both the eyes and mouth on with the marker pen.

- Add a scarf if you wish.

- Give your snowman a name!

- Or is it a snowgirl? Why not build a whole family of snowpeople?

Send pictures of your completed snowperson to with your name and age, and we will share them on Facebook. We will then get the public to vote for their favourite snowperson and will have a prize for the winner.
