Turn that Plain Jane Snowman into a Traffic Stopper!
“Do you want to build a snowman?”
“NO!” Your children exclaim.
Building snowpeople can lose their charm quickly, especially when you have to spend an hour getting dressed and you’re entertaining children whose boredom meters jump off the charts with the slightest repetition. So, now what? It’s time to think outside the box and get rid of Frosty’s 1960’s Burl Ives attire and persona and actually make him (or her) come to life! Instagram is, of course, a great place to find ideas.
This is one of those slap yourself in the head moments where you think “why didn’t I think of that.” Why not make an actual snow person! Your children can make one that has human parts and dress them up with items that define their likes and personalities.
ave your kids flying out the door in no time.
