To make a snowman you do not have to wait until winter and snow. You do not have to worry that your hands willfreeze. You need a few pieces of Styrofoam, imagination and a little time. Kids will have fun making a snowman in the living room.


Step 1

Styrofoam

You do not need snow for this snowman. All you need is a few pieces of Styrofoam packaging. Choose a thinner Styrofoam. The one we used was 1cm thick.


Step 2

Drawing a circle on Styrofoam

You can also draw a circle with a divider

Snowman is usually made from three large snowballs. Draw a circle on a Styrofoam. Use dividers or some other circular object.


Step 3

Then, cut a circle of Styrofoam with the help of a scalpel.

Sandingof Styrofoam

Sandpaper (grit of 120 or less)

After cutting at the place of the incision, Styrofoam crumbles. You will prevent this if you sand cut edges. Use sandpaper grit of up to 120th.
