Activity

Snowman Light Catcher
Snowman Light Catcher

Materials

• White glue (like Elmer's glue)
• Paper clip
• Wax paper
• Scraps of construction paper: black, and orange
• A hole punch (for cutting eyes, and buttons)
• Safety scissors
• Googly eyes (from a craft store) - optional
• Tiny buttons - optional
• 2 very tiny twigs (for arms)
• String or yarn (for hanging)

Directions
1. Working on wax paper, help your child to spread 2 or 3 blobs of white glue in the shape of a snowman. To keep distinct white rounds for different parts of the snowman, let each section dry partially before adding another round of glue.

2. Unfold a paper clip into a V-shape (to use as the hanger).

3. Put the ends of the paper clip into the glue at the top of the snowman.

4. Cut a tiny hat from black construction paper and put it on the snowman on top of the paper clip hanger.

5. Provide googly eyes, paper twigs and the other materials so your child can decorate the snowman.

6. Let the glue dry in a sunny location - it might take a few days.

7. 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.
