This super simple craft uses materials you are likely to already have in your home! You can use what you wish but it is necessary to have white and black paint and something orange for the snowman's nose!

What's better than a fun polar bear craft that looks adorable?! An edible one of course! I can imagine my 4 year old daughter would love this one as she adores marshmallows. I wonder could I keep her from eating them long enough to get the craft completed?!
