This is what we used but you can really use anything you have on hand. 

Styrofoam Balls
Mini Hats (99 cents at JoAnn Fabrics)
Googly Eyes
Mardi Beads
Pipe Cleaners
Pom Poms
Light Brite pegs
Glue (we used hot glue gun)

The Invitation

Close up of supplies

I hot glued a wooden craft square to the bottom of the ball to allow the snowman to stand up.  

We connected the balls together with a toothpick. 

Be sure to hold the toothpick in place when pressing down so it goes into both ends.  

"This scarf sure is tricky"

Then the frustration and feet stomping kicks in.

"I.... NEED..... SOME..... HELP!!!!!!!!"  

Adding buttons.


After talking to my middle girl (2.5 years) about the glue gun being hot, etc.  She chose NOT to use it.  She asked me to squeeze out the glue while she placed her pieces on.  

My oldest (4 years).... the simple things in life.  :-)  

Singing and dancing.  


I also bought a foam seat cushion.  We cut out some shapes to decorate as well.  

Adding pom poms to her candy cane.  


You can thread a piece of string through these to hang on the tree.



  1. Thanks for sharing these thoughts and stunning pictures.

  2. how would you do this with a child who isnt ready to use a glue gun? do you think foam stickers would work? my son is only two so this is a little bit above his level, but its so cute!
