The weather was absolutely horrendous, torrential rain all day, and we travelled for almost three hours to get there.
We were so glad we did, we made some gorgeous Christmas Crafts, and were shown how to make a sock snowman. We thought you might like to make one too.
You just need a white sock.
Some thick hair bobbles.
Permanent marker in different colours.
A little ribbon or similar for a scarf.
You will need the help of a grown up – toddlers and scissors do not mix.
Cut the ribbed leg part of the sock off. Take the cut end, and secure tightly with a bobble.
Turn the sock inside out, and carefully fill with dried rice (a measuring jug makes it easier).
Do not fill to the top – leave a couple of centimetres spare.
Secure this top part with another bobble. Tightly.
About a third of the way down, tie the ‘scarf’ to make the snowman’s neck.
Take the toe part of the sock and roll back the cut end a couple of times.
Pop it onto his head for his hat.
Draw his face…. and buttons down his front.
There you go! How to make a sock snowman!
You (Mummy) can heat him for 20 seconds or so in a microwave to use as a hand warmer.
Oh and the really neat one is the one big bro made.
