  • A gleaming white sock plays the main part in our Olaf-inspired sock snowman craft, giving this cheeky chap his snowy look. The brr-illiant thing about this craft is that there’s no sewing involved, so younger children can have a go too.

    To build a snowman of your own all you really need to do is fill a white sock with rice, tie it off with loom bands and decorate him with googly eyes and felt shapes.

    And as socks always come in pairs, you get two snowmen for the price of one, so let your kids have fun building sock snowmen of their own. They could even use a pair of fleecy socks to make fluffy snowmen and make loom band scarves to keep them warm.

    Scroll down for our step-by-step guide on how to make a sock snowman, inspired by Disney’s Frozen character.


    Age group: Kids as young as four can make our sock snowman craft. They might just need help cutting out the felt shapes.
