We’ve gotten lots of snow this winter, but we also have been sick and we’ve also had a few really cold snaps which leads to not much playing in the actual snow. I thought we should try and make a snowman that doesn’t melt.
So we got shelled peanuts, mixed a bit of white glue with white paint and Nico painted the shelled peanuts one by one. When one was done he would pour salt over it while the paint was wet. (You could also put salt in a resealable bag & throw the painted peanut in and shake it, thought of it after we were done.) We let it dry and shook off the excess and decorated. I did this part since it’s very tiny and Nico is not that far in doing small details yet.
I used craft foam for the hats and carrot noses, I just free handed them (you can tell, lol) to fit the size of the peanuts. A piece of yarn for the scarf, the tip of the handle brush in black paint for the buttons and googly eyes. I glued everything in place then I used the glue gun to glue a small round magnet behind the head (Since I did this alone I couldn’t take pics at the same time, sorry). Done!
