It brought back fun childhood memories and I made new memories with my daughter.
Our home preschool becomes very flexible and pretty lax during the holidays. We do a lot of crafts, baking, playing in the snow, and practicing our creative skills. Which to me is all still very important.
I would classify this Frosty Craft this is a kids craft but she did need my help just a little. Plus I wasn’t going to hand over a jar of glitter to a 3 year old. If you do, great. I am not that brave! It was still really fun and we had a great evening making our Frosty’s together.
2 Paper Plates
Construction Paper/Card Stock
Sponge Paint Brush
– On first paper plate cut the center out.
(If you were able to cut center out while keeping it a full circle, set aside. The second paper plate will not be needed. If not, discard.)
– Flatten out coffee filter and put string of glue around outer edge and pres to the back of the paper plate with hole in the center.
– Using sponge paint brush, brush glue on to the coffee filter that shows through in the center of the paper plate.
– Sprinkle white glitter on, shake around spreading it over whole coffee filter. It really does look magical.
– Glue on snowflake sequins.
– On top of paper plate, cut two slits about 1.5 inches apart. Set aside.
– On second paper plate cut edges off so that only center remains.
– Cut out hat from black construction paper, carrot nose from orange paper, and flower from pink paper. Glue into place. This is a great time to trace the shape on the paper and let your child cut it out. Even it doesn’t end up ‘pretty’, they need practice, right?
– Draw on eyes and mouth.
– Put glue in between slits on first paper plate (body) and slide face into slits. Press down firmly.
