Sometimes while I’m working, I have an idea. I was washing out tomato paste cans and thought, “What could I use these for?” Any early childhood education teacher thinks of this on a continual basis – nothing gets wasted, except the food you cook for those kids. Just kidding. Sort of. Then I thought, “A snowman!” as I lined them up on the counter. Finally, I got to this project for a recycled can lid snowman ornament that was forming in my mind.
