Do you wanna build a snowman? Well, now you can turn your kid into one. Glue felt cut-outs onto a white hooded sweatshirt for the buttons, eyes, and eyebrows. Add a few brown pipe cleaners to the hood for hair. Use orange felt, stuffing, and a wooden skewer to make Olaf’s carrot nose. With Frozen 2 hitting theaters later this year, this costume is sure to be a hit!

Tie colorful fabric around your child’s waist for the tail. For even more rainbow magic, paint strands of her hair with colored hair spray or use colorful extensions.
