White Dot Snowkids

Looking for something simple to keep the kiddos busy while you're making dinner?
Make some snowkids out of white dot stickers!
This is super easy, inexpensive, and a great quiet time activity for kids.  We used Avery 1" mailing seals, like these:
I got them in the office supply section at Wal-Mart, but I have seen them at Dollar Tree too.
Let your kid stack them up on a sheet of construction paper and add details with crayons or markers.  This is the creation my daughter made:
Her snowgirl has boots!  You can't see the top, but she also put the dots in a line and wrote her name.  She wrote one letter on each dot.
This is my son's winter day creation:
He added some cool facial features, but then decided he wanted his snowpeople to be robots, so he colored them gray!  Creativity at work!
This activity is a great storytelling tool as well.  Let your kid draw and create 'til their little heart is content, then ask him/her to tell you all about it.  What are the snowkids doing?  Where are they?  What is the weather like there?  The possibilities are endless!
Happy crafting with your kiddos!
