Next, she uses white paper (paint works too) to cover each box. After stacking the boxes on top of each other, starting with the biggest, it’s time to accessorize! Using attachable velcro, she fastens the snowman’s body and its various accoutrements.
Kinsey also cuts out different expressions for the snowman’s mouth to use as a tool to talk about and work through different emotions and feelings with her child. Children can express themselves by sticking a frown or a grin on the snowman’s face.
