Craft: Snowpals

,

From the Everyday Waldorf archives!

First, some background information : )
In my previous life (before I had children!) I was a teacher in a
preschool with a strong multicultural emphasis. There were no snowmen-
just snowpals (after all, how would one tell if it was a girl or a boy?!)
So… the other day the children were sifting through our box of usable
recyclables and found some yogurt cups. The following craft sprung from
that.
We painted the outsides of the cups with glue, and then covered them
with wool fleece (white). Buttons were added for eyes, an orange felt
carrot for a nose, and a smiling piece of yarn for a mouth. We tied a
bow around the “neck” and made a top hat from black construction paper.
Voila- snowpals!
