Make Mix-and-Match Stone Snowmen

These snowmen won’t melt when temperatures rise!

What You Need

  • colored markers
  • 9 smooth rocks, various sizes
  • white paint

What You Do

  • STEP 1: Collect rocks

    Collect different sized rocks that are smooth and a bit flat on the bottom. Wash the rocks with soapy water. Set aside to dry.

  • STEP 2: Paint the rocks

    Paint the tops of all the rocks with white paint to make “snowballs.” Let dry completely. (You may need to apply two or three coats of paint.)

  • STEP 3: Sort and decorate

    Sort the “snowballs” into three sizes: heads, middles, and bottoms. Decorate the “snowballs” with the colored markers. Draw faces and hats on the heads; buttons, scarves, and mittens on the middles; and boots or feet on the bottoms.

  • STEP 4: Arrange the rocks

    Put the “snowballs” together to make snowmen. Swap the “snowballs” to make fun combinations!
