Snowman Craft for Kids

1. Make a Snowman Hat

We gave the snowman a red and white scarf!

First came the black construction paper top hat.  Rhett insisted that we add a “pilgrim buckle” to his top hat, so I cut out a small buckle shaped brown construction paper piece for his hat.

2. Make a Snowman Scarf from Patterned Paper

Then we made scarves from scrapbook paper. I think this would really be a fun project to let the kids go wild with decorations.  Some things we thought might be used to bring our Frosty to life:

  • real fabric scarf
  • real buttons glued on
  • find small black objects for eyes
  • find small orange triangle for nose
  • use real twigs for arms
  • try adding pom poms to your paper snowman for buttons
  • You can use cotton balls glued to your snowman to look like snow
  • grab some orange foam to make a carrot nose
  • find small sticks and use them as snowman sticks for arms
  • Add a little silver glitter to any snow areas for shading

Fun Ways to Use Your Snowman Template Craft

  • Use this winter themed craft as prompts — just give it to all the kids with little instruction and see what creative results happen then decorate the class hallway bulletin board with a snowy snow-people scene!
  • Older kids may want to do multiple versions and make winter art scene.
  • Make two snowmen and then glue them back to back with a ribbon loop at the top and hang on the Christmas tree as ornaments.
  • Use your finished snowmen as gift tags! You can always attach them to cardstock to make them more sturdy.
