The holidays may be over, but for many, winter (the season of snow!) has just begun! For those of you stuck inside and looking for a fun craft to ease away the winter blues, try this recycled cereal box snowman from Amanda Formaro - featured craft designer at Kaboose!

Students are sure to become absorbed in each step of the creating process: sponge painting the box white to create a 'snow-like' texture, finger painting the snowman's eyes and mouth, using a variety of mediums - paint, construction paper, and recycled cups - to create winter clothing, and finally, using different graphic art tools to place the finishing touches on their cereal box snow people!
