This is a cute "gag" gift. Older children have loads of fun making it for relatives! It's fun to give in warm climates *grin*
Take a baby food (or other small glass jar) and fill with:
- 7 black beads (2 eyes and 5 for the mouth). You could also use small buttons or rocks.
- small piece of carrot (nose).
- 2 small pieces of twig or straw (arms).
- Optional: you can even buy tiny black plastic hats at craft stores and put one of those in.
Fill jar with water and put on a gift tag or label that says "Melted Snowman"
Optional: Cut a circle of fabric a little bigger than the jar. Put over the lid and tie with a ribbon.
Snowman happy, snowman mad,
Snowman silly, snowman sad,
Oh oh! Snowman melts away --
But he'll be back another day!
