  • Working on wax paper, help your child to spread 2 or 3 blobs of white glue in the shape of a snowman.
  • Unfold a paper clip into a V-shape (to use as the necklace hanger).
  • Put the ends of the paper clip into the glue at the top of the snowman.
  • Cut a tiny hat from black construction paper and put it on the snowman on top of the paper clip hanger.
  • Provide googly eyes, paper twigs and the other materials so your child can decorate the snowman.
  • Let the glue dry in a sunny location - it might take a few days.
  • When it is completely dry, the glue will become translucent. Peel it gently off the waxed paper. String the snowman on some yarn for a necklace or a window hanging.
