Of course, if kids are sick you can't go out. However, snowmen can be made out of other materials, and not just the snow.
1. Snowmen made of plastic bottles
All you need are markers (preferably waterproof), some cute ribbons and white empty plastic bottles,
Just look at them, aren't they stylish?
2. A snowman made of a glass jar
Paste cotton pads on a glass jar and add paper eyes, nose and mouth. In less than 20 minutes you'll have a nice holder for different school supplies.
3. A cotton pads snowman
The same pads from the previous idea, can be pasted to the carton and become a beautiful, hand-made greeting card. We used crayons for drawing a hat, a broom and the snowman's face.
4. A snowman made of plastic cups
Arrange the cups in the desired shape, paste them together (we used a hot glue gun) and painted his hat and face with temperas.
5. A cherry on the top - a snowman made of real snow
Hopefully the kids got better by now, so go out and do the real one!
Be careful with its "styling."
