Supplies Needed:

  • 1 white sock
  • 1 sock in color for the hat
  • rice
  • rubber bands (or thread)
  • colorful buttons
  • ribbons
  • glue gun
  • markers or paint
  • orange pom poms


Start by filling your white sock with rice. You will need a hefty amount (black sock pictured for visibility). Once you are happy with the amount (and size) of your sock snowman tie the top with the rubber band.

Take another rubber band and place in the middle – more to the upper side – of the rice filled sock to form the head shape.

Now glue the buttons to the bottom side by using a glue gun

Draw the mouth and eyes with a black marker or with black paint. Add pink cheeks (Crayola washable paints were great for the job). You can make the nose out of two small orange pom poms

Add a ribbon for the scarf –glue dots or glue gun work best for ribbons. You can cut off the excess white sock (or you can tuck it into the hat you will be making next).

Cut the colored sock. You will use the toe of the sock, so cut towards the heel to whatever size you prefer. Roll it a bit and place it on the head of your snowman. You can leave it as it is or you can secure it with some glue.
