Christmas in July. No, we don’t usually celebrate it but I signed the kids up to an art class where they painted a cute little reindeer on canvas. This led to Santa talk, snow nostalgia and gift wishing. So why not indulge my kids’ longing for Christmas time with a fun and easy paper snowman craft? It was a hot summer day when we made these snowmen but we had so much fun. There were even requests for the movie ” Frosty the snowman”.
Paper Snowman Craft

- free Snowman template
- construction paper (blue, white, black, red and orange)
- 2 googly eyes
- snowflake punch
- black marker
Step 1: Print the Snowman template and cut out the largest circle. Fold a white construction paper in four and trace the circle on the folded paper. Cut out the 4 big circles and fold them in half. (I used 6 circles for one snowman and 4 for the other and they both look great)
Apply glue on one half on a circle and stick it to the bottom of a blue construction paper.
Apply glue to the other half and glue another folded circle on top. Do the same with the rest of the circles. Stick the last half of the last circle to the blue paper.
Step 2: Cut out the middle circle and repeat the same actions as for the largest circle.
Step 3: Cut out the small circle and glue it on top of the snowman.
Step 4: Cut out the hat and glue it on top of the snowman’s head. Cut out a carrot nose out of orange construction paper and a red scarf and stick them to the snowman. You can draw the eyes or use small googly eyes. Use a black marker to draw a mouth and arms.
Step 5: (optional) Decorate with snowflakes. You will need a snowflake punch for this step. We love our snowflake punch and the kids use it a lot.
