Paper Snowmen

I decided to pull out some of the cardstock and patterened paper I hadn't used yet and let the girls make paper snowmen. I choose 3 different patterns and then dug through my scrap bin to find the black and brown for the rest of it. I even found some carrot pp I had been hoarding so they have actual carrot noses. ( I think that one even impressed my hubby.LOL) Add some glue, a circle cutter, scissors and a black sharpie and you have 2 cute paper snowmen. Macie did not want to take a picture with her finished snowmen. All I could do was get her arm in her picture. Makayla was really proud of hers and wanted to have her picture taken.

It didn't take long to do and was very toddler friendly. The girls thought it was the greatest. We hung them on a cork board we have in the hallway so everytime we walk past we will see them.
I love that I have creative kids!
