This is an awesome idea. I am very sure that your kids will love this “Christmas project”. It is very cheap also. All you need are some: plastic cups, a stapler and some staples a little hat that you can take from a little doll and some paper to make the snowman decorations. To make it just staple the plastic cups together to form two little balls. For the head of the snowman it is better to use smaller plastic cups. As I said for the hat you can use one from a little doll and for the eyes, nose, buttons and scarf you can use some decoration paper in different color.
