Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

What’s the plural of “snowman?”  Snowmen?  And is there a more gender-inclusive term?  Snow-people?  Anyway, we wanted to build one of those.  But the buckets of rain that have been falling here don’t give us anything to work with as far as that goes.  Luckily, I saw this online the other day.  A snowman factory using play dough!  We had to try it.

Our supplies looked like this at the start:

I forgot the step in the play dough recipe where you heat it up, but that didn’t seem to affect it too much.  And we added gold glitter for a little sparkle.  I wanted clear or silver glitter but could only find gold in my house.  Eila assured me it wouldn’t look like the yellow snow in that song about huskies.

You can see baby Marley’s hand in this one:

If you’re thinking that’s impressive that she could help build the snowman, you should know that she was actually taking the button (eye) off in the photo, and that the snowman shown there soon looked like this:

Here are some of our other creations:

I made these next two.  The babies got to the one on the right.  The one on the left is mad about that.

That’s all.  Sorry some of the photos are blurry.  This was a fun time and not nearly the disaster that many of my ideas-sourced-from-the-internet turn out to be.  Yay!
