Time In (for kids!)
We don’t get any snow in Malaysia, but you don’t need any to make this snowman! Text and images by June See
How you can make a snowman right here in the tropics
1 Create a makeshift funnel with a scrap piece of paper and tape to secure. Then take the rice and fill the sock until it’s about 2/3 full.
2 Pack the rice down and tie off the sock with a rubber band to prevent the rice from falling out. You should be able to mould two vague circle shapes (one larger than the other).
3 Take the second rubber band and tie it about 1/3 of the way down,
separating the head and body of the snowman.
4 With the help of an adult, use the glue gun to glue on the buttons.
5 Take a black marker and draw on the eyes, and then the smile.
6 Roll the pom pom until it becomes the shape of a small cone, and glue it in the middle of the snowman’s face.
7 Tie the ribbon around the snowman’s neck to make a scarf and glue down the sides of the ribbon to secure.
8 Ask an adult to help trim the top off the sock.
9 With the help of an adult, cut the coloured sock just before the start of the heel. Fold the edge over to make a small beanie.
10 Put the beanie on the snowman. You’re done!
