This can certainly be for classroom use or personal use at home during winter break.  While this is a fairly easy snowman craft, it is a perfect way to help young kids work on their fine motor skills.

The craft includes coloring or painting, using scissors, gluing and a lot of creativity from your child.

So let us take a look at this free printable snowman craft and get set for all of the creative ideas kids of all ages have to make it their own!

Printable Snowman Craft

This free printable build comes together with a carrot nose, a classic snowman top hat, and a snowman head, complete with your snowman’s eyes and smile.  

It also includes a top with buttons, a bottom section and a striped scarf to finish the look!

The great part is that this is just a starting point for your kids to get creative.

Now that you have your own paper snowman set, we will talk about how to have fun with this easy craft during the winter months.

How To Use This Resource

Start by printing out the image on regular printer paper, white construction paper or white cardstock for extra sturdiness.  

You could have your young children color the parts of the snowman and then help them cut out the different pieces before having them use a glue stick to build their snowman.

Kindergarten students could glue stick arms made of popsicle sticks and actual buttons on the top.  They could also use little twigs found outside for a more realistic look.

Another great idea is to use white paint and tissue paper as finishing touches to this adorable snowman craft.

Use little pieces of cotton balls or white pom poms to fill in the snowman and give it a real puffy and snowy look.

For a serious amount of sturdiness, you can cut out cardboard to glue behind the snowman to help him stand up on his own.

Included with this great activity is also an optional background with beautiful snowflake templates.

It can be colored with crayons, markers or paints.  For some extra sparkle, kids could use glitter paint or glue to give the snowflakes a bit of shine!

The kids will love placing their unique snowman on this snowy hill surrounded by beautiful snowflakes.

If you have more than one child completing this activity, you could print out several backgrounds and tape the pages together to have them create an entire snowy scene!

This gives them the opportunity to also create more than one snowman and try different ideas in the same craft.

Lastly, you could glue the completed snowman to a popsicle stick and create a puppet theater using the background as the scene for the show.

There are so many ways to turn this activity into something creative that all kids can enjoy fully. 

It is also a good idea to gather all the supplies you have for crafts and have the kids think about what they can use for this activity.

Kids will find this to be a fun build that will soon become one of their favorite winter activities!
