Styrofoam Snowman

Finally a post for this much neglected blog...I figure I'd better get this one up before winter is over.  I have another snowman craft coming up after this too!

This snowman is extremely simple to make.  Hasan made this and really enjoyed it.  Hasan hates getting his hands dirty and this was a perfect craft for him.  We did this while Bilal was napping.

Materials Needed:
3 styrofoam balls
2 toothpicks (plus one extra for making holes for the pipe cleaners)
2 googly eyes
3 pom poms
pipe cleaners for arms, mouth, nose and hat

How To:
Insert toothpick in the center of one of the styrofoam balls.  Add some glue around and then push the other end of the toothpick into the other styrofoam ball.  Repeat with another toothpick and ball to form the body.

Using a toothpick, make a hole on either side of the middle ball for the arms.  Divide a pipe cleaner into three pieces.  Use two of these for the arms.  Push each arm into the hole made on either side of the middle ball.

Fold a small piece of orange pipe cleaner in half.  To make the nose, use a toothpick to make 2 holes.  They should line up vertically.  Insert each end of the orange pipe cleaner into the holes so it makes a triangle shape.

On the top of the snowman's head use a toothpick to make a hole to insert the hat.  Using one pipe cleaner, insert one end into the hole and spiral the pipe cleaner to make the hat.

Glue on the googly eyes.  Use 1/3 of a pipe cleaner for the mouth and glue on.  Glue the pom poms on the middle ball.  Allow to dry.  Done!
