Snowman Measuring Stick
This year has been one for record snowfalls in much of the United States – and winter’s not over yet! If it’s still snowing where you are, create this Snowman Measuring Stick and once it stops, go out and measure the snow together! If you like this craft, check out our Popsicle Snowman.
What You’ll Need:
*Paint stir stick (you can get them for free in any paint department)
*Crayons or Markers
*Black and white paper
*Cut a white circle for the face, and a hat out of the black paper.
*Paint the stick white. Allow to dry.
*Meanwhile, draw a snowman’s face on the white circle, and glue the hat to the top.
*Glue the snowman’s face and hat to the stick. Allow to dry.
*Line up the stir stick and ruler so that the bottoms are even. Use the pencil to lightly mark each inch or centimeter.
*Use markers or crayons to go over the lines and add the corresponding numbers.
*Send us a picture of your kids measuring some snow with their new snowman measuring sticks we may post it to our site! firstname.lastname@example.org.
