In the spirit of the season, here is a fun little craft that you can make with your kids. Styrofoam snowpeople!

They are easy to make, fun to embellish and family friendly. Go make something with your kids, you won't regret it.
Besides, you won`t just have an awesome craft for your labours, you will have a great memory too.

Step 1: Gather Some Stuff

You will only need a couple of things to make these adorable little snow people.

  • Assortment of Styrofoam balls - from dollar store
  • bamboo skewers - from kitchen drawer
  • some scrap wood - I used pieces of kindling wood
  • embellishments - we used mainly buttons, pipe-cleaners, ribbon, and markers,  but let your imagination go wild.

  • a hot glue gun - parents only
  • some sand paper 
  • small hand saw
  • white glue
  • x-acto knife - adults only

That is so creative, I would never have thought to use buttons as a hat
