Winter outdoor activities are favorites for the whole family. And how we all love to make snowmen! These cheerful New Year characters can be made at home from scrap material.

You will need:


  • disposable cardboard cups;
  • foam balls;
  • glue gun;
  • decorative pom-poms (small and large);
  • decorative eyes;
  • Pipe cleaners;
  • felt;
  • Modeling clay, for decorating;
  • black permanent marker;

  1. Turn the cup upside down, glue a ball to the bottom - now you’ve got a snowman.
  2. Glue decorative eyes, button-pom-poms, a nose-carrot (mold it in advance using the modeling clay), make ear muffs using pipe cleaners and large pom-poms.
  3. Draw a mouth on the stick with a marker.
  4. Cut a scarf out of your felt for the snowman.
