    Punch two eye holes, close together, into one layer of a file folder. Draw your snowperson around these eyes using Crayola® Colored Pencils. Design the pin with three snowball sections. At the very top, make the flat brim of a top hat or other winter cap. With Crayola Scissors, cut out your snow figure, cutting through both file folder layers.

    Use Crayola School Glue to glue the two halves together at the very outer edges only.

    In the center snowball, punch two holes near the outer edges, through both layers. Twist a chenille stick into a short section, pass it through one hole, behind the figure, and out the other hole for arms. Secure the back with glue. Dry.

    Place your snowperson on a file folder. At the top of the figure, draw a rectangle to go above the hat brim. Make a mark about an inch (2.5 cm) below the bottom edge of the figure. Put the snowperson aside.

    Draw lines from the outer edges of the hat rectangle to the point you drew below the snowperson, creating a long, thin triangle. Cut out the triangle, then slide it into the snowperson. The tip should stick out below the snowperson, and the top hat will be on its head.

    Outline the pin with Crayola Glitter Glue except for the top of the hat, which has to pull down to change the eyes. Dry.

    Glue a jewelry pin backing to the top of the figure's back, above the chenille stick arms. Dry. Safety guidelines recommend that scissors with pointed tips are suitable for children age 6 years and older.
