Melty the Snowman!

We had warm weather last week.   It was in the mid to high 40's all week.  As a result of the warm weather, our driveway and roads were clear!!  Then last night we got about 5 inches of snow.   This isn't a lot of snow, since my parents who live SE of us got about 15 inches!!!  Anyway, this project was appropriate for the mild weather we were having last week and will hopefully be a sign of things to come!
Melty the Snowman - I saw this project in an older issue of Family Fun Magazine. 
Directions:  Cut a puddle shape out of white felt.  Glue a cotton ball onto the felt.  Add foam eyes and mouth and buttons or draw them on with a black permanent marker.  Add  a foam orange nose.  Cut a strip of felt for a scarf.  Use twigs or pipe cleaners for arms.
Materials Needed:  white felt, brown pipe cleaners, cotton ball, black and orange foam, black permanent marker, felt, craft glue


  1. That's so cute! It's STILL SNOWING here! I think we're up to 18 inches!

  2. Hi Krystin,

    You should post this on the FamilyFun Facebook fan page. The DeFrosty the Snowman recipe you refer to was posted there last week, and many people liked it. I think your non-edible twist on this idea would be a big hit.
