This is so simple of an idea and you can get your child involved to help get a kick start to the holiday festivities. Thoroughly clean milk/orange juice container by letting soak overnight with water and about two tablespoons of bleach. Rinse and dry. While you are waiting for this use old buttons or paper cutouts for mouth, nose and eyes. Get creative and give the snowman earmuffs, eyeglasses or whatever other creative add-on you can give to provide your snowman with a personality. For the lights: If making three or more like in the picture use a string of lights that is 150 lights. Puncture a hole in the back of the jug and push lights until you have about forty in each jug. This will provide room for the snowman to be placed close but as you desire. You can also use a little sand or some rocks in the jug before you put the lights in them to hold them securely if wind should arise.
What a great inexpensive way to create a special hand out to trick-or-treaters or to have for party favors. When buying the gloves, if you buy the gloves that are meant for medical or sterile reasons only use wrapped candies. If you want to use unwrapped candies but gloves that are meant to be used for sterile food preparations instead. Smarties for the finger work well and to top off with a spider or small decoration or even a ribbon would work. Maybe a little red dribble here and there would work out well also – Just don’t scare the wee little ones with too much gore. Halloween is already frightening for small ones as it is.
