|This is the Pinterest inspiration - LOVE|
When I got to their house, we spread out all of the supplies on the dining room table and got to work. I told the boys we were making a snowman picture. Mind you, I had planned to paint their hands with white paint (duh, snowmen are white) but as soon as Mason saw the bottle of blue paint, he announced his snowmen would be blue. Hmmmm, I said. OK, blue it is. Isn't that the best part of being 4? You aren't confined by any preconceived notions. My little man Mason has a very strong sense of himself and what he wants. "I'm first!" he declared. Little brother Braydon is fully aware of big brother's strong personality and sat patiently while I painted Mason's hand blue, three times (once for each picture) Then Braydon's turn. He wanted white snowmen. Maybe the blue snowmen are just really, really colder than the white ones. :)
I embellished each snowman with seed bead eyes and mouths and little pieces of orange fun foam noses. I used markers to draw scarves and hats and ear muffs.
I attached a label on the backs with the a "Merry Christmas" message, the year, and their ages. I hope the recipients love them as much as the boys loved making them.
