Styrofoam People

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

These Styrofoam people are great fun to build. You can make snowmen, or animals, or people.


  • Styrofoam balls and blocks in different sizes
  • Toothpicks
  • Scraps of yarn and fabric
  • Glue
  • Markers or paint


  1. Use toothpicks to join Styrofoam shapes together to form people, a snowman, animals, and so on.
  2. Glue scraps of yarn and fabric onto the Styrofoam to make hair and clothes.
  3. Use markers or paint to add faces or other details.
