Need an easy snowman craft? You may remember my light up Halloween Ghost Craft. Well I’d like to introduce you to my super easy light up snowman craft for winter. Its easy and inexpensive! Great for kids and adults, parties, party favors, etc.
You will need: Ping Pong ball (Dollar Tree) Flicker light/battery operated tea light (Dollar Tree) Permanent markers Elmer’s School Glue Glitter Fabric – optional Razor Blade – or something to cut with.
If you like this you might some of my other home hacks.
Cut an “X” in the bottom of the ping pong ball. This step is not for kids – I prepped this part for the class parties. You could try to have kids cut with something else like scissors, or a poke it with an ice pick.
Use the markers to draw a face on the ping pong ball, and let dry completely.
Paint on Elmer’s Clear School glue.
Put the ping pong ball on the flicker candle/battery operated tea light. You could do this step before the glue if desired.
Sprinkle the glitter onto the glue, and let dry completely.

Optional – cut a piece of fabric and tie it around the flicker tea light like a scarf.
Turn on the battery operated tea light and enjoy!

Oh what a nice craft! I was looking for something easy and fun to do with the kids. My 5-year-old loves the little battery operated candles and turns them on every night. I am planning (hoping) to make cookie cottages (found on Martha Stewart site), these snowmen will fit right in in the “cookie village”.
Thank you Mila, and I love that you make things with your kids! Please send me some pictures – I’d love to see what everyone creates 🙂
