Brown Paper Packages: Emergency Snowman Kit

In case of emergency snow day … bundle up, grab your “Emergency Snowman Kit” and venture out into the great white unknown!

Make this quick and easy craft with the kids next time it snows. Send them on a treasure hunt through the house and out in the yard to gather the supplies for your very own Snowman Kit. Then put it straight to use or better yet, package it up, have the kids make a cute card and take it to a neighbor or friends house for some instant snow day fun!

Don’t forget the hot cocoa!

EMERGENCY SNOWMAN KIT
{ EVERY HOME SHOULD HAVE ONE }

1 ] EYES : SEEING IS BELIEVING.
For my kit, I picked out some large navy blue buttons I had in my sewing drawer,
but acorns, large marbles, rubber bouncy balls or, of course, coal would do
.

2 ] NOSE : THE NOSE KNOWS.
A cinnamon stick will do nicely for a nose that you can reuse
or you could purchase a small wooden cone and have the kids paint it orange!

3 ] MOUTH : WHEN YOU’RE SMILIN’ THE WHOLE WORLD SMILES AT YOU.
Anything will do for a mouth! A pipe cleaner, a ribbon, or my favorite … rick-rack! A snowman’s smile
always melts my heart and you can’t help but smile back!

4 ] BUTTONS : BUTTON UP!
A snowman must be clothed in weather appropriate fashion! Scour the house for old
unwanted buttons and seal them up in a plastic bag, a cute sack or an old breath mint tin.

5 ] HAT : IT’S OLD HAT.
Grab an old hat out of the closet or head on over to your local store

and grab a hat and some mittens on clearance.
For what is a snowman without a hat?

6 ] SCARF : THE FINISHING TOUCHES.
A snowman isn’t complete without the cutest old scarf you can find!

Grab one out of the closet or run down to the local thrift shop.

7 ] ARMS : WRAPPED IN A WARM EMBRACE.
Last but not least find a couple of suitable sticks for a set of loving arms.


THEN ….


8 ] BUNDLE UP : WRAP YOUR SWEET SNOWMAN BITS INSIDE THE SCARF.

9 ] IT’S A WRAP : TIE THE SCARF BUNDLE TO THE END OF YOUR TWO STICKS
& VENTURE OUT INTO THE GREAT WHITE WORLD!



10 ] BUILD A BETTER SNOWMAN :
LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW!
