Ever since seeing this idea at Rockabye Butterfly I knew it sounded like something fun we want to do too!  So in case you haven’t seen this here is what we did!
Gathered glue (I always get it when it goes 75% off after back-to-school), pipe cleaners, pom poms, I cut out felt accessories, googly eyes, and puffy paint.

On wax paper  I made an outline of a snowman with glue for Minnie (3). Goofy did his completely independently.

We put a big blob of glue in the middle & used our fingers to spread a thick layer of glue.

We put pipe cleaners at the top to make hooks to hang. Then the kids went nuts decorating their glue snowmen. The puffy paint turned out super cute on top of the glue or to make arms.

Then you have 2 choices to let the glue dry. Leave it overnight or put on cookie sheet and bake 1-2 hours at 200 F. Then carefully peel off, hang & enjoy!

  4. I love this idea-especially letting your kids get messy and dirty by spreading the glue with their fingers! I'm going to try it next week-maybe it will encourage my kids who have yet to see snow this summer

  7. That turned out great! We did this last year and made ornaments out of them by attaching a paper clip. I meant to do this again but just didn't get around to it. I love how they decorated their snowmen!

  10. Very fun! We did a similar thing at Halloween. But white glue is so perfect for snowmen. I love all his accessories. Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness.
