Sock Snowmen



Need a snowy day activity for when school is closed? Old socks find a whole new purpose with these darling and easy-to-make snowmen.  Use everyday items from around the house to create sock snowmen that can be used as decorations, door stops or just for play!

Materials needed:

  • Uncooked rice
  • Scissors
  • Rubber bands
  • Buttons
  • Googly eyes (or more buttons)
  • Socks (2)
  • Sharpie
  • Hot glue and glue gun (or any strong glue)

Step one: Cut the bottom off your sock for your snowman's body.  If you want to make two snowmen, use the other half for the other body.

Step two: Fill with rice.

Step three: Tie the top closed with a rubber band.

Step four: Create your snowman's head and middle by separating two more sections with rubber bands.

Step five: Use hot glue (or glue of choice) to add your eyes and buttons. Draw on nose with Sharpie. Washable marker works, too.

Step six: Cut other sock to create your hat and scarf.

Step seven: Tie the top of the hat with a rubber band. Cut end of scarf to create frays.

Step eight: Dress up your snowman and find him a cozy spot in your home!
