Earlier in the fall, my daughter and I made autumn trees by coiling yarn and pipe cleaners. The trees came out so beautiful and were a wonderful fine motor activity for my little girl.
Heading into winter and with snow on its way this week, I wanted to try another coiled yarn project for the winter. Snowmen were a perfect idea for this method. Here’s how…
We squeezed school glue out onto the bottom of a piece of blue construction paper to form a large circle.
Starting in the center, we coiled a small ball of white yarn outward until it covered all of the glue.
We squeezed a smaller circle of glue above the larger circle & repeated the process. My daughter worked with a very steady hand to form her coils.
We used buttons to form the eyes, mouth and the snowman’s buttons and then we cut construction paper to make a hat and nose. I formed a scarf for mine as well. I used a snowflake sticker to embellish my hat and my daughter chose a flower gemstone for hers.
She did a fantastic job on her snowman. Look how cute he came out. I look forward to making a few real snowmen with her in a few days when the snow arrives.
