  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

Materials Needed

  • White Sock
  • Yarn
  • Rice
  • Craft Glue or Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Scissors


  1. Fill the sock about 2/3 full with rice. Use the yarn and tie the sock closed about 1-inch above the rice.

  2. Divide the rice filled section of the sock almost in half. You will want the section closest to the top to be a bit smaller. This will be the snowman's head. Tie a piece of yarn tightly around the sock where you divided into 2 sections.

  3. Roll or fold down the top, empty half of the sock so it looks like a hat. Now, you can use a variety of craft supplies to decorate your snowman!

  4. You can glue a large pom-pom on the top of the hat. Use a piece of felt or scrap fabric and cut out a scarf shape. You can give him eyes, a carrot nose (chenille stems or felt works well), mouth, buttons, etc. Use wiggle eyes, beads, smaller pom-poms, buttons, scrap felt, or anything else you have on hand.
