Your child can ring in the holidays with their own unique sculpture of Frosty The Snowman. They'll paint and assemble clay pottery to create a self-standing sculpture that'll look great on a table or in a window.

What You Need:

  • Small terra cotta pot
  • Medium terra cotta pot
  • Black and white tempera paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Markers
  • Googly eyes
  • Ribbon, or pipe cleaner
  • White glue
  • Low-heat glue gun (optional), with parental supervision

What You Do:

  1. Start with both pots turned upside-down. Have your child paint the medium-sized terra cotta pot with white tempera paint. Set it aside to dry.
  2. Paint the small-sized terra cotta pot with black paint and allow it to dry as well.
  3. Help her to glue a ribbon, or pipe cleaner around the lip of the black terra cotta pot, to decorate your snowman's hat. 
  4. Assist her in gluing the black pot on top of the white to attach the snowman's hat to his head.
  5. Have her glue on his googly eyes.
  6. Give her the markers, encouraging her to draw on his carrot nose and mouth.
  7. Write a message on the base of the white pot and share it with someone you love!
