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!
- Uncooked rice
- Rubber bands
- Googly eyes (or more buttons)
- Socks (2)
- 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!
