Mum In Stitches After Children Use Great-Grandma's Dentures To Build Creepy Snowman
A mum was left in stitches after her children used their great-grandma's dentures to build a rather creepy-looking snowman.
Stephanie Murphy, from Teesside, UK, was visiting her grandma Clarice with her husband Paul, four-year-old daughter Faye and three-year-old son Dougie on Saturday (2 January), after there'd been a good dumping of snow in the area.
Faye was keen to make the most of the white stuff and suggested building a snowman to put a smile on Clarice's face - but the project took a turn when 34-year-old Stephanie stumbled upon her grandma's dentures.
Stephanie explained: "So I look after my grandmother who lives around the corner and as we were walking to her house, my daughter Faye said we should build a snowman in her front garden to make her smile.
"So as we got there, I went in to give my grandmother a shower and my two kids and husband got to work making the snowman.
"Meanwhile in the house, I was looking for buttons for the snowman's eyes when I found a wash bag with all my grandmother's old teeth from throughout the years."
The school photographer decided to take them outside to show her children, who were fascinated by the false gnashers.
The next thing she knew - with a little prompting from Paul - the dentures had found a new home in the face of the snowman.

Stephanie said: "At first the kids were a little scared of their new toothy snowman but quickly fell in love with it.
"My grandma also found it hilarious.
"We build snowmen every chance we get, whether it's a tiny flurry of snow or if we are knee-deep in it.
"The kids love building snowmen and having snowball fights.
"We are a very active and outdoorsy family, we have a caravan and go on lots of trips away."
So, if the purpose of the project was to put a smile on Clarice's face, then it was clearly a resounding success. Indeed, watching her great-grandchildren play in the garden has given her a 'big boost' throughout the pandemic.
Unfortunately though, the creepy snowman has now met his demise; cause of death, melting. But the dentures are still in place in the garden for the time being, which is arguably just as creepy.
