snowman dress-ups

Playing in the snow is such a wonderful activity, in theory. It’s a lot of work to get kids ready to face the elements, that is if the elements will come to you at all in the first place. So far we haven’t seen much snow where we live, so this is an awesome project that you can use all winter long with or without snow on the ground and snow gear is optional. To keep it extra cozy, might we suggest Kicky Pants pajamas? There is virtually nothing softer out there. Here’s what we did:

Using felt we cut out a giant snow man – one large white circle, one medium, one small. Then let your imagination run wild! We cut out classic snow man accessories and some fun additions like boots, glasses, and a moustache. Affixing velcro to the back of each accessory is what makes this activity so fun. The silly combinations are endless, as we quickly found out.

Thanks to Kicky Pants for providing this unbelievably snuggable indoor snow man building gear. Check their line out here, we can’t recommend it enough.

    I love Kicky Pants. I wish they made their bamboo pajamas for adults.

      Kicky Pants does make adult PJs, nightgowns and maternity Ts now! They are ridiculously soft and yummy. There’s an adults section on their website.

    For a variation, you could make the snowman out of flannel, then the other pieces could be felt. The two materials stick together without the need for Velcro!
