crafting with grandma - snowman clothespin ornaments

If you are looking for a fun idea to do with your grandchildren before or after Christmas which even your youngest grandchildren will be able to do, check out this fun clothespin snowman.

All you need are white crayons, scraps of fabric, orange felt, glue and markers. Color the clothespins with the white crayons - it will show up just enough. Then on the "pinch" end, tie the fabric scrap down a bit for a scarf, cut felt into a carrot for a nose, glue in place, and draw a face and buttons - we used a sharpie for the face and a glitter marker for the buttons.

This is all there is to it - simple and you do not have to wait for paint to dry! You could make them after opening Christmas gifts, or send the supplies to make them to your grandchildren, so they are able to make them next week while they are on Christmas break. If you add a magnet strip to the back, they will become a fun magnet to put on a refrigerator - perfect for winter!

Have fun making this with your grandchildren!
