twigs (the children gather them from the playground area after a storm)
real or artificial carrot (for nose)
3-4' long felt pieces (the children cut the ends to make the fringe for the scarf)
man's old hat (from a thrift store or sometimes we make one from poster board)
plastic scoop from baby formula cans (may be painted if desired) for pipe
Place all items in a ziploc bag labeled SNOWMAN KIT with the instructions to: JUST ADD SNOW.
All the items needed to make a snowman are in one place, all you need is to wait for the snow.

"I own and direct a small daycare/preschool of 12 children ages 0-5 years. We teach spanish and sign language as well as the normal curriculum of letters, shapes, numbers, colors, body parts, community service, etc... We do most of these things through hands-on learning activities and crafts."
