Snowman Crafts for Kids


Snowman crafts for kids are a great thing to do in those winter months. There are days when it's a little TOO cold to go outside, or there are other days when there is no snow.

Snowman Crafts for Kids

Use this adorable tissue paper snowman craft to make a snowman at the kitchen table. And, guess what!? He won't melt!

The craft itself is fairly easy, but with the amount of work needed it is a bit more time consuming than other crafts. This one is great when you need to keep the little ones occupied for an hour or so.

In school, it can be done on those last few days before Christmas vacation.

Or, you can break up the craft and have the kids work on it throughout the week on recesses that are indoor because of the weather.

Step 1: Tissue Paper Snowman

Step #1:

Take the white tissue paper and cut out numerous squares.

These squares should be approximately 1 inch by 1 inch, but they do not have to be exact or all the same.

A little variety will give some texture.

Step 2: Tissue Paper Snowman

Step #2:

Cut a snowman shape out of the white paper.

If you want it to be more sturdy you can make it out of Bristol board.

We made our snowman with two parts but the usual three is okay too.

Step #3:

Take one square of tissue paper and wrap it around the flat end of your pencil, or in our case pencil crayon.

Put some glue on a scrap of paper.

Lightly dip the end of the pencil into the glue.

Then press this piece of tissue paper onto your snowman.

You will want to start at one edge.

Step 4-1: Tissue Paper Snowman

Step #4:

Repeat this process until your entire snowman is covered.

This is the time consuming part of the project.

Step 5-2: Tissue Paper Snowman

Step #5:

Cut out an orange shaped carrot for your snowman's nose.

Place a strip of glue on the longer end of the nose and place it in the center of your snowman's face.

Bend the tip up slightly to give a bit of a 3D affect.

Step 6: Tissue Paper Snowman

Step #6

Glue your two googly eyes above your nose.

Step 7: Tissue Paper Snowman

Step #7

Glue your two pom pom's on your snowman's body.

These are his buttons.

We are all done! And, there is no worry about him melting away! Keep him all year long.

Why not add a hat, and some arms out of construction paper. Maybe a scarf with a piece of ribbon.
