We LOVE this craft because it is SO easy and so fun to give! This fun Candy Bar Snowman Craft is one that the whole family can work on, and these are fun to give to just about everyone from bus drivers to neighbors. Kids love them, so they make great party favors too! This is also a great way to re-purpose those mismatched baby socks.
White Paper to wrap around candy bar
Baby Socks for hats
*we used the Garanimals Bobby Socks 6-18 months (assorted color 10 pack)
that we found at our local Walmart. This would be a really cute way to use
Felt Sheet for scarves
Fimo Oven Hardening Clay for making noses
Putting these together is easy and fun! Before you start, you will want to use your Fimo Oven Hardening Clay (orange) to make little carrot noses. If you don’t have clay, you can also color them on OR you could use a small piece of orange felt cut in the shape of a carrot.
Start making your snowman by wrapping your candy bar in plain white printer paper. We used the glue gun to seal it shut.
Next, cut your scarves by cutting strips up the long side of a sheet of felt.
Cut fringe on the end of the scarf pieces and then tie them around the snowman’s neck. Next, take the baby socks and put them on the snowman’s head for his hat.
Glue your eyes and nose into place and then arrange the snowman’s hat the way you want it. You can then fold down the sock to make it look like the hat is slouched over. Use a drop of glue to do this as shown.
One your hat is glued down and in place, you can then add another drop of glue to attach the pom pom to the end of the hat!
As you can see, we made a whole group of these cute little Snowmen, so much fun and my kids loved passing them out to friends and family!
