SNOWMAN IN A BAG VARIATIONS
Other variations can include adding cheap dollar store hair gel to the bag.
Include small winter theme items inside the bag too so kids can push them around with their fingers. Great for fine motor skills!
Concerned about the bag popping open, bag tops can be taped close with festive duct or craft tape.
Also you could tape the entire bag to a flat surface so kids can’t squish it too hard.
