Make a recycled snowman christmas tree decoration craft

As you may know by now we love to recycle and come up with new creative ways to reuse items, We seem to have quite a few white plastic lids (mainly from nutella pots) and we thought we would make a simple snowman christmas decoration.

This craft is great for young ones or toddlers and can be an ideal group project. It will help with hand and eye coordination as well as being creative and using their imaginations to create a snowman character, this could easily be applied to card to make a christmas card too!

What you will need:

  • Plastic white lid
  • googly eyes
  • felt piece or orange card
  • black card
  • ribbon
  • glue/cellotape
