This is the story of Francisco aka "Pancho" our snowman...in Northern Lands he goes by Francis aka "Frank"! Unlike other snowmen, Pancho is not cold to the touch but warm and some would say, even cuddlier!
Our Pancho spends his days among Trucks, Cars, Little People, Buzz, Teddy's and his best friend is Curious George! He also thinks everyday of the year is summer time since all the walls are covered in with boats, beach balls, fishes and anemones! He loves it there...but he loves it even more...When Night Time Comes!
Why?...well stick around and you will find out why...In the meantime, let's see how our cuddly friend came to be!
Pancho The SnowMan
2 Fish Bowls one with ruffled edges the other one plain
(mine are from The Dollar Tree)
1 pair of Men's White Socks
1 pair of Adult Fuzzy Socks
(both my socks are from The Dollar Tree)
String of white lights
googly eyes, puffs or buttons and your handy dandy glue gun
This is super easy, take the plain edge bowl and place it inside the ruffled one. You just made Pancho's head (the plain bowl) and body (the ruffled bowl)!!!
Now, we can't leave our friend just like that! Take 1 of your men's white socks and stuff both bowls (ruffled bowl first ) into the sock. the "toes" of the sock will be at the bottom of your Pancho, just like if you were putting on your own socks. Take one of your Adult Fuzzy Socks and stretch it as much as you can..this will become Panncho's scarf. Wrap it around Pancho's neck (where both bowls meet) Take the other sock and place it on Pancho's head to make his hat. You can tie a rubber band around the excess of the sock (the toe part) to make a pom pom for his hat.
The rest is up to your imagination...eyes, button nose, pom-poms for buttons, flowers for his scarf, you name it give Pancho some personality!
I found that placing the string of lights inside our friend, would be easier at the end when I had an idea of how he would look like .
What you do is you poke a hole on the sock in the back of "the neck" and start pushing the lights to the bottom bowl little by little...don't worry about the hole been noticed, the scarf will cover it!
And there you go...your own Pancho!
See how sweet Pancho looks? He is really all Warm and Fuzzy inside...and such a nice glow...he keeps and eye every night on the little boy he shares his room with! he really "Loves the Night Life" When he becomes a star on his own shinning his light on his best's buddy's dreams...until morning comes...
Good Night Pancho, Good Night,
