To make this snowman puzzle, you'll need:
--6 to 7 large tongue depressors
--black and white paint
--a bit of orange paper or craft foam
Start by taping all but one of your Popsicle sticks together with masking or clear tape. Turn the sticks over to the front side, and draw a line with marker about 2/3 of the way up. The area above the line will be painted black, and the area below, white.
Cut out a small triangle nose from craft foam or construction paper. Paint your snowman, also paint the extra stick black. This is the rim of his top hat. Glue on the eyes and nose after the paint is dry. Draw a smile with a red marker.
Lastly, remove the tape from the back, separate the pieces, and then presto, you have a little puzzle to put together! The kids both had these in their workboxes last week. Good times! You could also glue the sticks together and stick on some ribbon for a door hanger or an ornament.
