  1. Carefully fill your sock with the rice. One trick is to put the whole baggie inside the sock and then dump it out in there and pull out the empty plastic. 
  2. Tie the piece of string at the top of the rice mound. Your snowman is currently a potato. Make sure you tie this really tight! Feel free to cut off the ends if too long.

  3. Use the mini scarf to create a head by tying it around a small section of your rice sock potato snowman.

Congratulations! You now have your very own snowman that you can pop into a microwave and heat up to keep you warm.


Heat up your snowman by placing it in the microwave along with a mug of water for 2 minutes. 

The cup of water helps keep the rice from getting too hot. Do not place the snowman in the water.
