Soapy Snowman Sculptures

Snowmen that even folks without snow can make!

Most children love doing anything which includes dough or clay. This one is bound to become a fast favorite!

Materials:

  • 2 cups Ivory Snow detergent
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Extra things for your snowman:

  • Toothpicks
    Popsicle sticks or small sticks
    Buttons
    Felt Scraps
    Small beads
    Yarn
    Pipe cleaners

Instructions:

Make your "snow" by mixing the Ivory snow with the water and beating it with a hand mixer until the consistency of dough.

Immediately shape into 3 snowman shape balls. The head a little smaller than the middle, etc.. You can use toothpicks to hold the balls together as you stack them on top each other.

Now add your arms and eyes. Use twigs or popsicle sticks for arms, buttons or small beads for eyes. Make a scarf out of felt scraps or crochet a yarn chain. We used pompoms and pipe cleaners to make earmuffs. A orange pipe cleaner cut and folded into a small triangle was our nose.

These look cute on a stand or mantle.
