Even if it's not snowing outside, have your kids make a snowman...indoors! This craft will let your kids use their imagination while they create their own unique snowman!

Materials needed:
Marshmallows or cotton balls
Tooth picks, pipe cleaners, or pretzel sticks
Construction paper
Glue
Optional Supplies (glitter, paint, sequins, markers, crayons, etc)


You can start this craft by drawing three circles on a piece of paper.

Have your kids glue marshmallow or cotton balls along the circles. If you don't have marshmallow or cotton balls, you can cut paper circles for your kids to glue onto the snowman.

Once the snowman is finished, have your kids decorate. We used the leftover marshmallows as stamps to make snow.

Glue your tooth picks or pretzel sticks to make the snowman's arms.


Have you had snow yet this year? What kind of activities do your kids like to do on a snowy day?

Usually we are out playing in the snow. That is a great idea. I think I have enough cotton balls to have my youngest do this today. She will love it

We've gotten a little snow but it was only an inch and gone the next day. We did a sensory activity.

 We  live  in southern Ca. So no snow for us unless we drive to it!!! My dd however, is having a snow princess party for her birthday this weekend. I think maybe we will do this as an extra craft for the party!!
