With the arrival of winter and children, and even adults withimpatiently waiting for the snow and the opportunity to make a snowman - funny, with a carrot spout, in a cap and scarf. But what if you are a resident of the warm south, and can you see snow only in pictures or movies? Or maybe it's just that the weather does not spoil snowdrifts? The creation of a snowman can be taken in hand in the literal sense of the word - to make it from improvised materials: various fabrics, yarn, paper, salted dough and beads. Such handicrafts can be dealt with together with the kids, creating not only cute snowmen, but also a great mood. In addition, cute little things can become Christmas decorations for the New Year, and a fun gift for loved ones. And most importantly, neither with the advent of summer, nor in a warm room such snowmen do not melt.
Snowman from salted dough
To create this craft, you can connect the kids. Lesson modeling positively affects the small motor skills of the child. Razminaya dough fingers and palms, fashioning different small details, kids use imagination and imagination, representing what will be a snowman. The right hemisphere of the brain develops, the vocabulary increases, the speech skills improve. Children will not only enjoy the process of creating crafts, but also the enhanced development of the necessary skills. Salty dough can be bought ready or made by yourself. It will take:
- Flour (1 part);
- Salt Extra (1 part);
- Water (0.5 parts);
- A little starch and glue PVA (1 tbsp.);
- Food color;
- Garlic press;
- Clear nail polish;
To make a dough for modeling, you need a goodflour of the highest grade. Salt must be taken with fine grinding, preferably an extrusion. Make sure that there are no dark inclusions that will ruin the look of the craft. It is better to take a very cold water to mix the dough. It will be necessary to prepare 2 types of dough: with dye and without. The principle is the same. Mix all the loose ingredients. Mix and start pouring water over slightly. In the process, add glue or vegetable oil in the same proportion. Good to mix. It turns out a lot like a soft clay. It should be elastic and do not stick to your hands. We give our test the shape of the balloon, tightly wrap it in film and send it to the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes. When the dough rests and settles, you canto proceed to modeling. Advice! Dough in the air quickly becomes crusted, so during molding, cover the finished parts with a wet cloth or towel. We sculpt from an unpainted dough. We roll 2 balls - smaller and bigger. At once take an equal and flat base on which you will lay out details, for example, a piece of paper on a cutting board. Put the smaller ball on the sheet and flatten it into a cake. It will be the head of a snowman. The ball is better to initially form as neatly and smoothly as possible so that the flat cake does not need additional alignment. Next, we flatten the larger ball - the snowman's body. With the help of a toothpick, we push the smiling mouth. Press gently. The snowman at us cheerful, therefore we mark places for an eye and we draw a toothpick ray of wrinkles which are at all who smiles sincerely. Now we need to roll two small balls - these are the eyes of the snowman. We moisten with water those places which we have defined for the eye. With the help of a toothpick and fingers we attach our balls. Lightly pressed. We roll two thick sausages - pens. Attach them to the sides of the body of the snowman and bend one of them. In it, he will hold a broom. We accept for color dough. It is necessary to form two completely tiny balls. Their size should be smaller than the eye - these are the future pupils. We flatten them with fingers and fasten them to the eyes. Now we need to roll out the thin sausage and cut 2 pieces - this is the edges. To arrange them on the face should be very carefully, because the position of the eyebrows can make our snowman sad or angry. From a piece of dyed dough, make a spout. First we form a ball, then one edge is rolled out and we get a cone. We glue it to the workpiece, like all the other parts with a wet brush. For the legs, make two large drops and spread them in one plane from below the flat cake. It's time for the snowman to wear clothes. Pugs - two round cakes. The shape of the cap You can come up with your own or to blind the most ordinary cap, as in the photo. To do this, you need to form a cake cone-shaped (triangular) with a wide base. We fix it on top of the head. We roll the sausage and attach it like a lapel on a hat. You can make a toothpick pattern. A scarf is made from 2 parts. Two rectangles (larger and smaller). First we deal with the smaller part. Odin from narrow sides is even more zauzhivaem, and the other way around, flattening. This edge with a toothpick or blunt side of the knife is cut into a fringe. Attach a narrow edge up on one side of the snowman. The second rectangle is wrapped around the throat of the snowman. It turns out, that the end with a fringe looks as if peering out from under the scarf, wound on a neck. We decorate the scarf with a pattern like a hat. Now you need to make a broom. To do this, a piece of dyed dough should be passed through a garlic press. We put off one flagella. The other sausages are aligned to the width. We take a toothpick and cut one sharp end. We attach our sausages to the cuttings and wrap them with a deferred flagellum. We give our snowman a broom in the hands, and almost an artifact is ready. It remains to dry it. The best option would be simply air drying. In the oven or in the microwave oven, there is a risk of deformation or cracking on the product. Let the snowman dry himself. It may take a couple of days, depending on the temperature of the air. After the snowman finally dries, cover it with glossy or matte varnish and the craft is ready.

First you need to cut out all the details. For the body we cut out a blue circle from a blue fleece circle with a diameter of 17 cm, for a head 11 cm. For a cap we need a rectangle made of blue material 8 x 15 cm, for a scarf 27 x 2 cm. At the edges of the circles we make a marking stitch. Now we need to tighten the blanks a little, fill with stuffing material and tighten it thoroughly. We tie a knot and fix it with glue for reliability. Now we pass the needle through the edge of the whiteball, next to the thread bundle, and then we pass through the needle through the blue ball, starting from the filament knot. We leave the blue ball, put on the needle and thread with a button and go in the opposite direction through the blue ball to white. We fix the thread in a white ball. Now two parts are securely fixed to each other. We make a cap for the snowman as follows: make a small doorway of the lower honor of the future cap and wrap around the head. The edges are glued together. Now thread the bandage and cut the upper part into a fringe. We simply tie a scarf with a knot. We embroider eyes. You can also make them from beads. Remove the sharp tip from the toothpick. We paint it and paste it instead of carrots. The snowman is ready.

The junction will be the bottom. Pour into the inside of the rice. The bag must be packed not tightly (see photo). Now we take the stock of the sock from which we cut offand a sock, and a heel, and put on our pouch. We dispose in the middle. With the help of severe threads we divide the workpiece into 3 parts.
