Here's a marvelous craft idea for children to make during their Christmas holidays — a handmade Snowman from cotton-wool. It can be used as a bauble to hang on a fir-tree or a cute gift for the people you love. To make it you'll need cotton-wool, glue, a brush, toothpicks, beads, soap, paint, spangles and a twig.

The scheme of making:

1. From cotton-wool take some lumps and tear them to make the cotton-wool smoother.

2. Soap the hands and with light movements roll up 2 balls. Dry them.

3. Coat the balls carefully with glue, mixed slightly with water and spangles. Let the balls dry. If you want the balls to be of a more even form, wrap them with a thin layer of cotton before gluing; then cut off the unnecessary piece you held the ball with. Allow the balls dry well.
