Cute Winter Snowman Craft Bulletin Board

Does it snow where you live? In Illinois, we get plenty. My kids get so excited for a fresh snow! They talk all day about the snowman they are going to build when we finally get outside. To accompany the snow, I like to have my kids complete a fun winter craftivity. If you don’t get snow where you live, I’ve created a great snowman craft that will definitely make up for the lack of snow. This snowman craft is a great fine motor activity for preschool and young elementary students during the winter. A great celebration for that first snow! It’s a great little craft to attach to any writing piece or to decorate your classroom or hallway bulletin board. 

The winter snowman craft is lying on light blue paper covered in snowflakes. There are cotton balls, crayons and mini snowflakes erasers on the image as well.

Use As Morning Work

This snowman craft comes with three different style of patterns: coloring, tracing, and ones you can print directly onto construction paper or cardstock. The kid friendly coloring templates for this snowman craft are formatted so your students can color the snowman using three regular sheets of white paper. This activity is easy to print and can be set out for students when they enter the classroom in the morning as quiet morning work. Students will color the hat, stick arms, coal buttons, carrot nose, boots and scarf. I love when students get creative with the scarf! It’s so fun to see how colorful they are when completed. Once students have colored the individual pieces, they can cut them out, glue them together, and then display them in the hallway or on a bulletin board.

This snowman craft has been colored by a student. The scarf is red and the buttons are black. There are orange scissors as well as black, brown and red crayons lying nearby.

Snowman Craft Helps with Fine Motor Practice

If you have kids that struggle with coloring in the lines or using scissors, this snowman craft is a great activity to use in a smaller group setting. Print out the desired number of pages and work with 3 – 5 students to color neatly and correctly. It’s a great time to chat with them while they work too. My kids love holding a conversation while we do our crafts. After they color, you can show them the correct way to hold scissors and cut around the rounded edges. The trickiest part of this craft will be the snowman’s hands. Show them how to cut around the outside, but leave the little triangles between the fingers. Then, come back to those areas to do tiny snips to finish it off. 

In this image there are two snowmen. One has a green scarf and the other has a red scarf. There is an orange pair of scissors as well as some multi-colored crayons laying on the table.

Add a Snowman Writing Prompt

Kindergartners and First Graders can use this snowman craftivity alongside a thoughtful writing piece. Have students write about their favorite thing to do in the snow or a made up snowman! You can even pair it with a book like “Snowman At Night,” by Caralyn Buehner. My kids enjoy inventing silly ideas about what snowmen might do at night when we are asleep. If you don’t want your students to color the snowmen themselves, you can print the templates onto colored construction paper for them to cut out. You can also cut the pieces out beforehand and let the students just glue them together after completing their writing. 

Two snowmen crafts are hung on a shelf where blue and green bins are kept. The snowmen have orange carrot noses, black hats, black buttons and brown stick arms. One is wearing a red scarf and the other has a green scarf. They are also wearing black boots.

If you have the materials available, I love adding real button instead of the coal circles. Have students glue them on the medium and large circle and let them pick the colors! Didn’t this one turn out so cute?

This snowman craft has read green buttons on its belly. There are crayons lying on the white table beside it as well as other colored buttons. This snowman has a red scarf. A pair of orange scissors is on the page also.

I hope you and your kiddos enjoy creating this snowman craft. It is also part of my Winter Crafts Bundle in my TpT store!
