So we came home from the store today and it was HOT HOT HOT….. the “feels like it” temp. was 107 degrees F.! Really I’m not even kidding when I say that when you walk outside it feels like someone is laying a wet, hot blanket on top of you. So I started preparing the peaches that I needed to use up to make a pie and Charlee Ann started fussing. We needed to find something for her to do and peach pie making was not what she was wanting to do. Just to spite the hot summertime outside we decided that we needed to build a summertime snowman inside! Sometimes you just have to improvise when your crunched for time and we had everything to do a great summertime snowman already at home. Items Needed:
- Shaving Cream (must be cream, gel won’t work 🙂 and stay away from menthol… it doesn’t go over real well in the eyes.)
- googly eyes
- pipe cleaner
- pretzels for arms
- some imagination
Directions for Summertime Snowman
- Let you child build the snowman by squirting it out of the can. They may require some help but go ahead and let them try themselves.
- Give them the pipe cleaner and googly eyes and let them go to town. We did end up using pretzels for arms by the time we got down.
- Before we were done the summertime snowman looks more like a squashed bug and I’m pretty sure my daughter was wearing more shaving cream than we had on the table but we were inside and cool and having a lot of fun!
She had to make a mommy for Olaf and she HAD to have a pink nose!
We had a great time with the summertime snowman and it’s really affordable to put together! Send me some pics of your snowman and I will add them to the post!!
