There’s snow doubt about it Winter is coming! *Excuse me while I laugh heartily at my multiple clichés and puns :D* The nights are drawing in and the weather is super nippy so why not cosy up and get crafty with the kids. Today’s tutorial to make your own ice skating Snowman theatre is a fun way to embrace the season while keeping warm! It was made using materials provided by Bostik as part of their Craft Ambassador program.
Full instructions to make the theatre are included in this video but I’ll also pop text instructions below.
What You’ll Need
Bostik Blu Tack Foam Pads
Bostik Micro Dots
Bostik White Glu
A cardboard box
Foam or paper to decorate the sides
Snow themed stickers
Fluffy Balls (or pom poms)
Start with a cardboard box, stick back 3 flaps with tape, leave one flap open.
Decorate the sides & back using foam (or paper) stick into place using the Bostik Foam Pads.
To make the frozen lake (ice-rink) use a blue sheet of cardboard with a piece of tracing paper laid on top. Cut shapes out of foam to make the edge of the lake, add white foam on top to represent the snow. Stick into place using Bostik Micro Dots or White Glu.
Using Foam pads stick the ice-rink to the open flap of the box
Cut a slit into the back of the box, then decorate the interior using stickers. To add further decoration I stuck fluffy balls (snow balls) to the scene using foam pads.
Cover a polystyrene star with Bostik White Glu, then sprinkle over glitter. Once dry stick to the back of your scene using foam pads.
Now to make the snowmen. Stick fluffy balls (or pom poms) on top of each other and then stick to a lolly stick.
Tie thread around some sparkly pom poms and stick to the top of the theatre using foam pads.
Finally paint the outside of the box, slide your snowmen through the gap at the back and you’re ready to play!
