Making Melt Free Snowmen
No need to melt thinking of kid craft ideas to make this winter season. Building snowmen is a favorite activity for kids in snowy climates, but when it's just too cold to stay outside for long, keep your little ones occupied indoors with this fun activity.
Using mini craft sticks, paint, and festive craft felt, you and your child can make this kid-friendly decoration together in no time! Then use your melt-free snowmen pieces for winter decor or just for some pretend play fun.Continue to 2 of 6 below.

Glue the Popsicle Sticks
First, have children glue their mini popsicle sticks (seven total) together to look like a fence. Place five next to each other, then glue two popsicle sticks across all five to hold it all together. Set aside to let it dry completely. Repeat this step for each mini snowman you want to make.Continue to 4 of 6 below.

Cut the Craft Felt
While the paint is drying, grab your craft felt and scissors. Cut out snowman features like a triangle nose, square eyes and, of course, a hat and scarf! You can use traditional colors, like black for the coal eyes and hat, or you can switch things up and use whatever color felt you like best.Continue to 6 of 6 below.
