Indoor Snowmen

We had fun making some no-snow-required snowmen this week. (We made these a couple of months ago in Joy School, but the older kids didn't get a chance, and they've been wanting to do it.)

Here is what you need: Powdered laundry detergent and water to make the 'snow,' and any decoration do-dads you want to use to make him jolly. I went to my pantry and came up with cinnamon sticks and whole cloves, to my sewing box for some spare buttons, and the kids' craft supplies for felt and beads. I also set out paper plates for the kids to make their snowmen on to keep the table from getting too messy.

Scoop out some detergent into a large bowl. We used about 1 cup of detergent per person.

Slowly add water while stirring until it makes a thick paste.

Then roll it into balls, and build yourself a snowman. Add all your accessories. Have fun.

This one was mine. I used cinnamon sticks as arms, cloves for the face, beads for the buttons, and a felt strip for the scarf.

And a bonus of this craft is that it smells so good and clean. Having one in a room is like an air freshener. Love.
