Since we need to play a lot, I have discovered that I can do some lovely Christmas decorations just by playing with some things.

There are so many symbols of Christmas and winter and snowman is one of them.

All the materials you need to have are: a sock, some beans or rice, some rubber band a marker or some buttons.

Now you can start by filling the sock with beans or rice, tie or use a rubber band for the first tier, and then repeat the process again and again if it is possible until you get a two or three tiered snowman. You can make its face with a marker or use some buttons or other items which can help you get a joyful face.{found on hubpages}
