Cotton snowman craft for prescchoolers

 

This is the best time of year for snuggling up with your little tinies and a cup of hot cocoa with lots of marshmallows and maybe a candy cane and a big ol’ pile of picture books.  When the boys were small, we would just grab armloads of books and dump them in the living room floor so we could go through them one by one, reading the stories, oohing and aahing over the illustrations, wondering what might have happened after the book ended, and making crafts that went with the books.

Seriously.  We could waste an entire day doing that.

Since you probably enjoy similar days, and it’s the perfect time for reading about snowmen, I have to share this adorable craft with you.  It’s easy enough for preschoolers to enjoy, but fun for older kids, too.  And it’s all made from upcycled cotton products you probably already have in the house!

  2. I love this craft! I am more of a loose parts Preschool crafter, but I can completely see this being a loose parts craft too. I can’t wait to see what my little comes up with.
