snowmen and flashing ducks

We finally finished our snowman!  Back on a toddler proof Christmas tree  my daughter and I started making a snowman at her request.  We had left him to dry and then would start painting.  Yesterday we finished a second coat of white paint and this morning he was dry.  

The next step therefore in making the snowman is to stick on, eyes, nose and buttons.  We used pom poms in colours for the buttons, but you could just as easily use any other item including buttons themselves.  We used black pom poms for the eyes and smile and an orange pom pom for a nose.  I was thinking that for future we could have stuck an empty egg carton on for his nose so that it looked more like a carrot, but we went for the orange look similar to the snowman in the snowman book.

I wrapped a piece of fluffy material around the neck to create a scarf and then my daughter stuck some felt onto the head to create a hat.  She was very happy with the end result.

I found today whilst doing the weekly food shop some flashing ducks which you put in the bath.  The girls love water and having a bath and seen as they were Christmas ducks, I thought I would treat the girls.  When I put the ducks in the water the girls absolutely loved them.   The girls faces were so amazing and they spent their bath time playing with these ducks.
