  • colored markers

  • 9 smooth rocks, various sizes
Collect rocks.
Collect different sized rocks that are smooth and a bit flat on the bottom. Wash the rocks with soapy water. Set aside to dry.
Paint the rocks.
Paint the tops of all the rocks with white paint to make "snowballs." Let dry completely. (You may need to apply two or three coats of paint.)
Sort and decorate.

Sort the "snowballs" into three sizes: heads, middles, and bottoms.

Decorate the "snowballs" with the colored markers. Draw faces and hats on the heads; buttons, scarves, and mittens on the middles; and boots or feet on the bottoms.

Arrange the rocks.

Put the "snowballs" together to make snowmen.

Swap the "snowballs" to make fun combinations!
