Book: Frosty the Snowman
Activity: Sock Snowpeople
Frosty the Snowman is actually a song first recorded in 1950 by
Gene Autry. There are lots of book versions of it but my
favorite is this Little Golden Book.

Sock Snowpeople Tutorial
• small white sock - infant to toddler size
• polyfill stuffing
• string or strong thread
• black Sharpie or fabric markers
• felt, knit gloves, pompoms, buttons, beads, etc. for decorating
• two twigs per snowperson
• fabric glue such as Fabri-Tac (my favorite)
Step 1: Stuff the foot of the sock with polyfil;
shape so it's fairly smooth.
Step 2: Cinch the sock together above the filling by tying
with string, thread or even a rubber band.
Step 3: Cut off the ankle part of the sock about 3" above
where you just cinched it together.
Step 4: Fold over the cut off part to form a little
hat for your snowman.
Step 5: Tie a string, thread, etc. around the sock about
where a neck would be to form the head.
Step 6: Use felt, pompoms, markers, etc. to bring your snowman to
life; knit gloves are fun to cut up and popsicle sticks make great skis.
Step 7: For the arms, make a small snip with the scissors
on each side of the snowman and insert one end of your twig
that has been thoroughly dipped in glue.
Optional Step 8: If you'd like to use your snowpeople as ornaments
then thread a loop of floss through the top.
