Mix-and-Match Snowmen

These snowmen won’t melt when temperatures rise!

What You Need

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

What You Do

  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.
  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.)
  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.
  4. Arrange the rocks.
    Put the “snowballs” together to make snowmen.
    Swap the “snowballs” to make fun combinations!
