Process of performance of work

Step 1: Form the balls

We tear off a piece for a snowman’s bottom ball from a roll with cotton wool. We put on the palm of a liquid soap and in a circular motion we form a ball from a cotton wool. We put the ball for drying.

We put aside the formed balls for a while for drying, and at this time we will deal with other parts of the snowman’s body.

Step 2: The basis for the trunk, nose and hands

From a small twig we cut out a thin stick. On it we will later fix the balls. In principle, to simplify the process, you can also use toothpicks.

We break off two small pieces from the twig. This will be the handle of the snowman. We sharpen them on the one hand, so that it would be more convenient to insert a snowman into the padded body.

Step 3: make a hat

We take two coins, one of which is smaller in diameter, and the other is larger. Pencil outline coins. The smaller circle will be for the top of the hat, and the larger one for its fields.

Pencil draw a long strip for the cylinder. Cut out the strip, leaving small allowances for gluing. We bend the strip along the drawn lines.
