Download Instructions here

What you need: White Sock, Rice, Yarn, Sweaters, Buttons, and Pipe Cleaners

Step 1:  Add rice into your sock, you need to fill it about two-thirds of the way – about 2 cups of rice depending on size of sock.

Step 2:  Tie off the top and fold the extra back down.

Step 3: Add whatever garments you think your snowman needs.
* Use old scraps of fabric or pieces of an old sweater for your snowman’s clothing.

Step 4: All that is left is to add the face! You could draw a face with markers, or maybe add buttons for eyes. It's up to you!
