How to Make the Snowman Craft
Each of the crafts on my site is very simple to put together. Many kids can copy a model and complete the activity on their own. Here are some easy steps to get you started.
- Print the templates onto construction paper and cut them out.
- Choose which writing template you want to use and glue that to the snowman’s body.
- Attach the scarf where the neck will be.
- Add the face with a hat on top.
- Next, add the facial features (carrot nose, eyes, mouth, etc).
- Then, glue on the arms.
- Last, add the little holly berry to the hat and complete your writing piece!
Construction paper colors you will need: black, blue, orange, green, red, brown.
Below, you will find a video tutorial for completing the activity. I love watching a video to show me how to do something, so hopefully, this makes things even easier for you!
