by Sara On Day 9 of our 25 Days of Christmas advent calendar, the activity was a snowman craft.
They used markers to draw clothes and happy faces.
The firefighter was insistent that his snowman needed to have a big pink smile.
When they were done putting the snowmen together our last step was to glue cotton balls on the front so that our snowmen were bright white and fluffy.
There are lots of different variations of the snowman craft:
- The snowman's body can be made out of Styrofoam balls and toothpicks; white paper plates of different sizes; paper mache'd balloons (painted white)
- The hat, nose, eyes, arms etc. can be created using felt, construction paper, pom poms, paint, modelling clay, or pipe cleaners.
- If you have a large roll of art paper, you can trace a snowman shape around your child's body and then they can decorate this life-size version of their 'snow-self'
What arts and crafts supplies have you used to make snowmen crafts?
