First up was a snowman. I bought big men's socks at the dollar store. Bo filled it with rice. I tied a knot in the top to keep it in and a white ribbon around the neck to make a head and body. I threw it in the microwave for a couple minutes to prevent bugs.
While it cooled he did a Cars puzzle I found at the Dollar Tree.
I used the top of the sock to create a hat. I tied a piece of red felt to the top of the hat to close it. I glued red felt stripes to the hat upon Bo's request and also made a scarf. Bo then directed me in button placement. I used the hot glue gun, but he picked the buttons and pointed to where he wanted them.
I got a new, bigger box for better small world play and hopefully less mess. The base is fake snow. I built the cabin for a box I'm planning for this summer, but it worked well in here ad I added the arctic toob.
Drew was the first one into the box, but everybody enjoyed it. Bo played for a long time.
I made new red play dough for Christmas. Bo enjoyed that too.
