Cotton Ball Snowman
Use the free template and let your toddler glue on the cotton balls to create a 3D snowman! Add a few winter stickers for more decoration. The tutorial also uses googley eyes, a heart cutout, and some green paper to make his top hat. Grab a small twig from outside for the arms and you have a cute winter craft idea.
Snowman Windsock Toilet Paper Roll Craft
Repurpose that pile of toilet paper rolls to make a snowman windsock. His face is made from paper and a Sharpie. You can use beads or buttons to go down the middle. If you are familiar with these types of crafts, you know the bottom part is made from crepe paper streamers. So be sure to look in your old party stash before you make a trip to the store. This is also a great activity for kindergarteners as well.
Paper Bowl Snowman Craft
These brightly colored snowmen and snow girls are super cute and really easy to make. All you will need is paper bowls, pipe cleaners, pom-poms, googley eyes, and paper. The scarf is made from cardstock, but you could also use any type of fabric including felt.
Snowman in a Snow Globe Handprint Craft
This is such an adorable winter keepsake and could be given as a Christmas gift to grandparents. Toddlers will dip their hands in white paint to make the “snowmen”. Mom, you will have to help draw the faces and hats because these are pretty small details. Write their names or a sweet message using markers or glitter glue.
Paper Plate Snowman Wreath
Making these snowmen wreaths are budget-friendly and really easy. Perfect for a classroom full of toddlers. Adults will need to cut out the middle of the paper plates, along with the nose, hat, arms, and scarves. It would be best to prep the pieces for them and let them use a glue stick to paste everything in place on their own.
Melting Snowman Craft
You know that part of winter where the weather is warmer than it should be and a snowman would never last? What a great craft to make during this time! The melted snowman is made from flour, glue, and shaving cream. Once you mix it together, transfer it to a plastic bag, then snip the corner. Let toddlers squeeze the mixture and spread it around with a paintbrush. Add the other pieces then let it dry!
Coffee Filter Snowman Craft
This craft requires minimal supplies and is great when you are in a time crunch but still want to allow your toddler to have time to be creative. You can draw on the mouth and eyes or let them glue pom-poms in place. Let them go crazy with a white crazy to make snowflakes for more decoration.
Easy Popsicle Stick Snowman Craft For Kids
With just a few buttons, paper, glue, pipe cleaners, and tape you can make the cutest popsicle snowmen! If you have kids who are older, this is a great craft to let them complete with their younger siblings. Once you are finished, you can hot glue twine or yarn to the back and let it double as a Christmas tree ornament.
Do You Want To Build A Snowman Craft?
Let the toddler imagination come to life when you set this tray of craft supplies in front of them and let them make their own snowman! You can use the supply list in the tutorial or round up what you have on hand. There’s a free template provided for the actual snowman or you can free-hand it.
Paper Bag Snowman Craft Puppet
Lunch Bag crafts are always really fun and entertaining for the little ones. Outside of that, you will need paper, wiggle eyes, buttons, pom poms, glue, and a marker. If you have pipe cleaners you can use those instead for the earmuffs. Once they are finished, let them put on a puppet show for extra fun!
Potato Masher Snowman
If you haven’t used a potato masher for painting you are missing out! It keeps toddlers busy for quite a while and you don’t have to worry about much supervision. That is as long as you have a space set up for them where you don’t mind a little paint. Once they dip the masher into the paint, they stamp it on the paper. They can add the finishing touches by dipping a q tip into the black paint. Glue on the hat and nose, and you are all set!
Clothespin Snowman Craft
These may be the cutest snowmen you ever did see! The supply list includes the clothespins, yarn, glue, pom poms, paint, a brush, and a marker. Once you are finished you can clip these just about anywhere for decoration but they look especially great on Christmas trees!
Foam Cup Snowmen
When it’s a little too cold to play, let’s make snowmen cups instead! Use different colored felt, pipe cleaners, and pom-poms to make a variety of outfits. Draw on the eyes using a marker or use wiggle eyes instead. The nose is made from a yellow piece of felt. If you don’t have paper cups on hand, you could use these same instructions and substitute toilet paper rolls instead!
This winter season your toddler is going to be so busy making snowman crafts you may have trouble getting them outside! Pair any of these crafts with a festive book reading or movie for the full experience. You know kid favorites include Frozen where you could recreate Olaf in one of your crafts.
