Egg Carton Snowman

Yesterday we spent a little time getting crafty!
I made a model of the egg carton snowman to show Jacob what we would be doing. At his age just verbalizing directions is sometimes not enough. He does not have the world experience to necessarily be able to imagine what we can do with some creativity. We collected our supplies and prepared the area.
We started by painting the 'hat' so that it had time to dry. We then painted the nose and let that dry. I prepared by putting the eyes and a mouth on the snowman with a sharpie. While we let the pieces dry we glued the buttons on and stuck the pipe cleaner arms in. 
Next we glued the hat and carrot nose on. I was able to help by holding the pieces while he placed the others in place. 
And Voila! 
Jake loved his little snowman! He was so proud of himself and carried his little snowman all around the room showing it all of our activities! He also took it downstairs to show him all of his toys! It was very cute!
