holly Here's an idea!

I have idea to make a snowman ornament with your kids.

Buy baby socks.

Buy those little foam balls

buttons (little)

hot glue

magic marker

pipe cleaners

yarn

Those little pom-pom black and orange fuzzie things

tiny twigs

First put 2 smallish sized foam balls in the sock. Now close the sock using the yarn but don't close it too tight. This will also use as your ornament holder. The end where the sock opens will be the top of your snowman. So once you have flipped your snowman over (so the opening faces upward) use any colored pipe cleaner you please. In the space between your 2 foam balls twist the pipe cleaner in there. ( This will be your scarf.) Now take 2 little black pom-pom fuzzies and hot glue them to your snowman/snowwoman's head for the eyes. Use the orange fuzzie for the nose to look like a carrot nub for the nose. You hot glue that too. Now take any color magic marker you want to use and draw the mouth onto your snowman. Okay time for the buttons! Place 2 any colored little buttons on the tummy part going down on your snowman. So you'll probably need 4 buttons. For the arms, take 2 tiny twigs and at the back of the snow-person glue the twigs tomake hands. You can also use googly eyes for the eyes if you want to.

I hope yall will make these and have fun making them too.
