Purchase pinecones (or gather them outside) and 1 ½- inch wooden beads at a crafts store. Your child can paint cones and beads white, along with small twigs or bamboo skewers that have been snapped into thirds. Let dry. Help him dot eyes onto the bead with a black marker and adhere the tip of an orange toothpick for a carrot nose.
Attach head to pinecone by slipping the top point of the pinecone into the bead's hole; secure with glue. If your crafts store doesn't carry colored Popsicle sticks, have your child paint a few light blue. When dry, help him glue 2 of them to the bottom of each pinecone for the skis. Glue on twigs or skewer pieces for arms and ski poles, then adhere a large sequin to the bottom of each pole. Have your child cut a wee scarf and hat from felt and glue them on. Trim the hat with sequins and a pom-pom on top.
