Toilet Paper Roll Snowman


Another snowman craft made my Hasan.  I saw this idea on Crafts By Amanda.  She also made children out of toilet paper rolls as well.  They looked so cute I had to get Hasan to make one of them.  I love her idea of how to make the earmuffs...very creative!  This was the first time Hasan used the hot glue gun.  Everything dried very quickly.  We didn't paint the toilet paper roll because I wanted to finish this craft in one sitting.

Materials Needed:
1 toilet paper roll
small piece of pipe cleaner
2 small pom poms
2 buttons
1 strip of felt
markers
hot glue gun

How To:
You could paint the toilet paper or even wrap it in construction paper.  Since ours was white we left it as is.

Draw on the snowman's eyes, eyebrows, mouth, nose and some rosy cheeks.

Using a glue gun, glue on the buttons.

To make the ear muffs we first glued the pipe cleaners on using the glue gun and then glued a pom pom on each side.

Finally tie the felt around the snowman to make the scarf.  Done!

    1. Thank you Amanda! Hasan loved making it! I also had him made the styrofoam jellyfish from your blog (http://keepin2boysbusy.blogspot.ca/2012/08/styrofoam-jellyfish.html)
