5. Using your colored papers, cut out different shapes for the Snowman’s body parts. Cut two twig hands using a brown colored paper, cut one small triangle using the orange colored paper for the nose, and cut out three rectangular shapes using either green or yellow colored paper for the scarf. You can actually use any colors you'd like so be creative.
