- Paper grocery bag
- Cotton balls (white)
- White tissue paper
- White Styrofoam
Place the bag over your child's head and mark where his eyes and arms are located. Remove the bag and cut out holes for eyes and arms. Put the bag over the back of a chair for decorating. Paint the bag white, if desired. Dip cotton balls into a saucer of glue and attach them to the paper bag. Scrunch up small pieces of the tissue paper and do likewise. Dip Styrofoam pieces into glue and add them too. Continue until the bag is totally covered. Mound extra balls of tissue onto the top of the bag to give a rounded look. Wait until the glue dries before the child wears the snowman costume and acts out a snowman story.
