Bring the Snow Inside and Make Your Own Mini Snowman

Today my kids celebrated the first official day of spring by staying home from school due to a snow day.  Not exactly how everyone expects to spend it! My daughter took advantage of the (hopefully last) snowfall.  She didn’t want to stay outside in the cold so she filled our bathtub up with snow and spent the afternoon making her own mini-snowmen.  Later, I found this little guy in my freezer. Isn’t he cute?

Here’s all you need to make your own mini snowmen:

  • Toothpicks
  • Pennies
  • Peppercorns
  • Acorn tops
  • Baby carrots

Experiment with adding whatever else you find around the house or outside.  (I’m thinking this one needs a little sister or maybe even a dog with a leash?!)

This simple project is a perfect way to embrace you inner child and just play.  Get creative the next time it snows and post your mini-snowmen pics below!
