Cutest Easy Sock Snowman

How cute are these to make with the little ones?!!!!!!!!!!!

For this craft, you'll need a pair of old socks that are crew length, or longer, rice, rubber bands, map pins with heads, buttons, any left over fabric if you want for a scarf.  First, cut off the top of the sock from the foot.  Turn the sock inside out and attach a rubber band tightly to the top of the sock. Then turn the sock right-side out again.  Fill the sock with rice. Make sure to pack it down as you go so the sock gets a nice round base.  Rubber band the top of the sock closed and put another rubber band 3/4 of the way to the top for the head of your snowman.  Now, decorate! Tie a scarf around your snowman's neck and add eyes, nose, and buttons.  Use the toe of your cut socks to fashion a stocking cap. Or you could use colored argyle socks to create hats and sweaters for your snowman.  You can either sew or glue on your buttons, and add embellishments - twine, bows, ribbons, etc - as needed.  This is such a quick and easy craft - 10 minutes tops - that it would be simple to create a whole family of snowmen for your mantle!
