"Poppy the Snowman"
Really simple and the result is pleasing.
Take one white tube sock (we used men's) and fill the bottom third with rice, about 2 cups. Tie it off at the top of the rice and fill the middle third with about 1 1/2 cups more rice. Tie this off at the top of it as well. Go to the top of the last third and fill with about 3/4 cup rice and tie it off also after bringing the top of the sock down
Add 2-3 medium buttons to his front and 2 small buttons for his eyes. Small black beads for his mouth or sharpie dots and a piece of orange felt cut into a small, sharp carrot nose. To finish him, cut a small piece of material into a strip and tie it like a scarf.
Before you know it, you have a snowman friend. You could make a whole family using different size socks and adjusting the amount of rice.
