    Here's 2 fast and pretty easy ideas.

    Have kids bring an empty clean can (veggie or soup)and an old sock (any color except white). Paint can with acrylic white paint mixed with salt. It should be pretty thick to look like snow on the can. When dry, hot glue sock to top of can to make the snowman's "stocking" hat. Have kids paint black eyes and mouth and orange nose. These are really cute. The sock needs to be cut off and a pompom hot glued on the end.

    Also, you can use tongue depressors to make cute snowman ornaments. Use the same kind of paint as above to paint the stick on both sides- all but about an inch on top. When dry, paint the remaining part black - this is the hat. Hot glue pipe cleaner for the rim of the hat on both sides, and have kids use a toothpick to put on the eyes, nose, mouth, and buttons. I also hot glue ribbon for hanging on the tree. It's really cute, too.

    Hope these two ideas help you! Happy holidays!
