Snowman Craft

Sharing is caring!

An easy snowman craft for kids to make on a winter day. It comes with a simple printable template, perfect for preschoolers and older kids.

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.

The snowman is a great addition to out winter crafts made up of many other snowmen, penguins and polar bears.

How to make a snowman craft
