Rosy Cheeked Snowman Fridge

I am so excited about the return of our snowman fridge.  It's becoming quite the tradition at our house, and I don't know what we'll do when we get around to replacing this old refrigerator.  Each year we find something to add to the snowman to spruce him up a bit, and this year it was the addition of rosy pink cheeks!

It's amazing what two little pink circles can do to make our snowman look super excited to be back this year!

If you want to make your own snowman fridge, this is what you'll need:

  • Construction Paper
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Tape
  • Bowls, Cups, Lids for Tracing
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
Trace large circles for the eyes and buttons, and trace smaller circles for the mouth and rosy cheeks.  This could be great practice for children, and they can even cut out the circles if they are old enough to use scissors (remember safety scissors for the little one!).  

I don't trace anything for the nose or arms, but it can be done!  The nose could be a triangle, and the hat and arms could be made of rectangles.  Use this as an opportunity to discuss shapes!  When all the pieces are cut out, use a tape that's easily removable to put everything in place on the fridge.  Stand back and enjoy!!  

Note, Frosty the Snowman or Christmas carols playing the background while you are decorating the fridge are an added bonus!
