It looks like this winter is going to be a long one. We have already had a couple of snow days so far and the temperatures keep dropping! So what do you do with all those unexpected snow days? A craft of course! The winter reminds us of hot cocoa and building snowmen, so I thought making easy snowman crafts for kids would be a fun project to tackle when the kids are snowed in!
Snowman Crafts For Kids
As a teacher, I found that my most popular crafts during the winter time were to make paper snowflakes and pom pom snowmen. This particular magnet craft is a perfect preschool snowman craft and can hold up the kid’s artwork on the side of the fridge!
This craft is super easy and you probably have everything you need already in your crafting space. My kids are contently finding ways to use the googly eyes so we keep many many different sizes on hand. You can experiment with different sizes of clothespins and pom poms to make your snowmen. The concept is still the same.
