Fall Family Challenge: S is for Silly Snowmen

December is almost upon us! And though I live in the south now, I just can't imagine a holiday season without snow - which is why it's a good thing we're making the 12 hour trek north to spend the holiday with our families. This is actually our second year having a Virginia Christmas, but last year we were pounded blessed with three major snow storms; giving us a very white holiday season!

I really hope that there is snow when we travel to Michigan this year for Christmas. My husband and I are looking forward to taking AJ sledding and building a snowman!!

Here are some silly snowman ideas for outdoors or indoors... no matter what climate you live in!

S is for Silly Snowmen

Snowman Chair Covers

Need a fun and easy way to spice up the "kid's table" this year? Check out these adorable Snowman Chair Covers from Disney's Family Fun. All you need is a few yards of felt, a sewing machine and some glue! (Psst... a plain white pillow case works well too!) For even more fun, cut out an assortment of eyes, noses, and mouths and let your littlest guests decorate their own snowman before the feast!

Headless Snowman

Turn your kids into a snowman this year! It's as easy as it sounds... make a snowman without a head, and have your child stand behind it for an adorable photo opportunity. Make a whole family of headless snowmen to create a Christmas photocard that your friends and family won't soon forget!

Rice Krispie Snowmen

We don't need the commercials to tell us that there is something magical about Rice Krispie Treats! Check out this fun Snowman Treats recipe from The Recipe Link. These are sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Read All About 'Em!

Great reads about our frosty friends:






Creamer Bottle Snowman!

These adorable little buddies are super easy to make! What an adorable way to recycle your coffee creamer bottles! Check out the full instructions here at DLTK's Growing Together.

Pin The Nose on the Snowman!

For a fun game for the little ones this holiday season, make a snowman on the wall using various sized paper plates. Give your frosty friend a smile and a mouth, and cut out several carrot shaped noses. Use a little double sided tape and blindfold your guests to see who can get the nose on the snowman!

  1. These ideas are so cute. We go through enough creamer to make an entire snowman army :) I really like the snowman chair covers. But since I don't know how to operate (or own) a sewing machine, I would definitely use a pillow case!
