Yop Snowmen

Last fall one of our little ones had a birthday party at StrongStart.
The parents brought in wonderful snacks and balloons to share.
They provided a Yop drink for every child.
As soon as I saw them they screamed snowmen to me.
So I saved them till today.
At the same time we emptied our Coffee Mate container so
I made a big snowman.
 I provided milk caps and rice so they could make 
them into shakers.
 The tiny paint brushes work well for the small details
on the small container.

Look at the following picture of two brothers 
and how their approach to painting their snowmen 
is quite different.
One is painting the outside while the other is
painting the inside.
And both are very proud of their work.

I never get tired of watching a child  work.
 Even though I'm sitting right across from him taking pictures, 
it doesn't break his focus.
 His face, to me, reads "What else does it need?"
 He was the only child to paint the lid.
It could have been because his mom glued it on first
before he started painting.
Or that is just how he saw his snowman.

Here are our snowmen looking out at all the snow.
