Make an Indoor Snow Person

Indoor Snow Person

This jolly snow creature can actually live inside the house!

What You'll Need:
  • Old newspaper
  • Black marker
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Old plastic bags
  • White paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Old hat and scarf

Fold six double sheets of newspaper in half. With a black marker, draw the outline of a large half circle on the paper.

Cut the head, body, and base of the snowman out of doubled sheets of newspaper.

Cut out the circle, and unfold the papers. Do the same for a smaller circle, then another circle smaller than that one. You now have the snowperson's base, body, and head.

For each stack of circles, staple the sides together 1/4 of an inch in from the sides. Leave about three inches of the circle unstapled so you can stuff the circle.

Stuff the indoor snowman with old plastic bags.

Stick your hand inside the circle -- there should be three sheets of paper above your hand and three below. Stuff the inside of the circles with old plastic bags. Staple the openings closed, and staple the circles on top of each other.

Paint the snowperson white, and let it dry. From brown construction paper, cut out "branches" for arms, and staple them to the body. Glue on black paper "coal" eyes and mouth and an orange paper "carrot" nose. Place an old hat on its head, and wind a scarf around its neck.
