It doesn’t snow in Singapore, but that doesn’t stop us from making a sock snowman. 🙂 This easy-peasy craft takes only minutes to complete, yet allows the children to have fun decorating.
- 1 men’s sock in white
- 1 rubber band
- Cellophane tape
- Coloured paper
- Adhesive felt material
- Crepe paper
Unlike other sock snowman tutorials that use rice or styrofoam balls as the filling, ours is stuffed with newspapers. Scrunch a few pages of newspaper into balls. A big one for the body and a smaller one for the snowman’s head.
To assemble, push the big newspaper ball into the sock, followed by the smaller one. Tie the top of the sock with a rubber band.
Fold the top of the sock (the “tail” that sticks out after tying), over your snowman. Depending how big your sock snowman is, you may be able to cover the entire snowman with another layer; like ours. If you have made a big snowman, then the layer of sock might be the cap for your snowman.
Using the coloured paper, fold a paper hat for your snowman. Secure the hat on your sock snowman with cellophane tape. If the extra layer of sock cover your sock snowman’s head, then you could skip this step.
Twirl crepe paper around your snowman’s neck. Tape it down with cellophane tape.
Use the adhesive felt to decorate your sock snowman. We used the felt material to decorate our snowman’s eyes, mouth, buttons and hat.
Have fun making your sock snowman with or without the snow!
