Creating your snowman countdown
STEP 1: To begin, your child can start colouring the Snowman’s scarf in. Feel free to be creative and use glitter, glitter glue or different coloured pieces of paper stuck on for fun textures.
STEP 2: Cut out all of the pieces for the Snowman, which consists of the face, the nose/pointer, the top hat and the scarf pieces.
STEP 3: The top hat can either be coloured in or traced onto black craft or construction paper, and it can also be decorated with stickers, glitter, feathers, beads or any other decorations of choice.
STEP 4: To assemble the Snowman, begin by glueing the face onto the back of a paper plate. Glue sticks are advisable for this, rather than PVA glue.
STEP 5: The nose can now be attached to the centre of the Snowman’s face with a split pin/brass brad. Ensure that it is fixed on, but loose enough to allow the nose to be moved. You may also choose to mount the nose onto card to ensure it is sturdier. This part will require an adults help as you may need a knife to pierce a hole in the plate first.
STEP 6: Your child’s Snowman Christmas Countdown is complete, so it’s time to start getting excited for the special day!
