We had a long beautiful fall but now it’s the end of October and it has already snowed twice. I wonder if we’ll have a snowy Halloween and if maybe we will be able to build a snowman by the end of the month. So why not already focus on a snowman craft?
Our snowman craft is part of a four Christmas craft series that I will share with you. So, please come back for a cute Santa, an elf and a gingerbread man.
Made just with paper, this snowman is a great craft for preschoolers and kindergartners to practice their fine motor skills and do some scissors cutting. Use it in the classroom, if you’re a teacher, or at home with your kids. It would make a great bulletin board decoration or hang it in your house.
- Snowman template
- Cardstock paper: white, black, brown, red, orange, yellow and green
- Black marker
HOW TO MAKE A Snowman CRAFT
The snowman template comes with two versions:
1. home template – cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.
2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.
This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
