Thank you to Hefty for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try these fun, festive crafts! #HeftyHolidays #ad
Winter in the South typically means chilly and wet. Some days it seems as if the sun will never appear again. Thanks to Hefty Holiday Crafts we have a plan for fun when the dreary winter days come. Come let me show you how the children and I worked together to Build a Snowman Family.
Our family has been long time users of Hefty brand products. With three children we depend on Hefty trash bags and disposable tableware to help make our lives easier.
On a recent trip to Walmart I picked up a big pack of disposable plates for our Friday homemade pizza night. Not only did they make cleanup a breeze but were the inspiration to make Hefty Snowman Kids Project. We love an easy kid craft!
Before getting started with the snowman craft gather all the supplies needed.
Easy Snowman Craft Supplies
- 2 Hefty Disposable Plates
- Craft paper
- Hole Punch
Use the hole punch to punch two holes at the bottom and one hole at the top of the first plate. Punch two holes at the top of the second plate.
Secure plates with yarn by lacing the yarn through the holes to join the plates together. Create a loop at the top to hang.
Once the snowman body is together it’s time to begin to build the snowman family. Most of the snowman shapes were precut but I wanted the children to be able to participate as much as possible so I left the eyes for them to cut.
I love seeing Tootsie’s concentration as she carefully cuts out around the shapes.
Next we used glue to hold everything in place. Love that sassy red bow!
Tootsie insisted on drawing the mouth on herself. Yes, she is still in her pj’s. Winter came early and it was a cold and rainy day so we stayed snuggled in our pajamas while we made our snowman craft.
After the snowman family was hung on our kitchen window they had the idea of snipping our snowflakes to add around them. The snowflakes are simply coffee filters that were folded and cut with safety scissors.
Little Boy, our seven year old, was so inspired by the fun holiday craft that he grabbed colorful markers to make more snowmen.
Hope you have been inspired to get creative and have fun with your little ones! #HeftyHoliday
