If You Can't Beat the Snow...Celebrate it. :)

This is our version of a cool Pinterest post I saw.  Here's the original link:

At age 2, Caedyn isn't quite ready for the counting version.  So, we decided to just adapt it to make a snowman.  Caedyn has actually been asking to make a snowman.  He has memories of warmer snow.  Yes, there is such a thing as warmer snow.  I'm talking snow in California or snow in Colorado, even.  This snow here in northern Illinois is soooo cold that it will hardly stick together to make a snowball, let alone a snowman.

So, we went for an egg carton snowman, like the above.  And here is our version!


Materials we used were:

1 packet googly eyes.....50 cents
1 piece black felt.......39 cents
1 piece orange felt......39 cents
Black puffy paint (slick version)...$1.29
The above were all purchased from JoAnne Fabrics.
2 sticks.....forraged
and of course, the egg carton...recycled


After creating his, Caedyn decided it was so much fun to put things on the egg carton, it must be even more fun to take things off, so his snowman is missing the stick arms.  I got the picture taken before he removed Mr. Snowman's 1st google eyeball.

Ah well...it's the fun that counts.
