Build A Snowman With Your Child (Using Kitchen Items For a Pattern)

This is a snowman that almost anyone can complete on a snowy afternoon with their child, or even alone, for fun.

I created it because there is nothing like making a memory and masterpiece with your child on a cold, snowy day.

My original plan was much more elaborate and would require special purchases, so I decided to create something from the everyday things around my house instead of spending money and adventuring out in the cold.

This adorable project just needs scrap paper, dishes and utensils found in most kitchens plus lots of imagination.
