Supplies Needed


Free pdf file to download for non-commercial use, it can be for classroom use or at home. Download it as many times as you need for a group of kids for personal use.

White cardstock paper. You can use white regular printer paper but cardstock is more durable for kids crafts.

If you are tracing the snowman parts on paper use construction or craft paper. White paper for the body, red for the scarf, orange for the nose, black for the eyes, buttons, and hat.

Glue stick or white glue.

Pair of scissors, for kids use kid safe scissors. Supervise kids when working with scissors.

Optional craft materials: buttons, pom poms, googly eyes, and tissue paper.


Build a Snowman Instructions


1. Download the free printable snowman craft file. Make sure to have a pdf reader to open the file.

2. Print the file out at home on your home printer or at a print shop. I prefer to print on cardstock paper because it is thicker for adding glue and craft supplies. However, if you are simply gluing it together with a glue stick printer paper works fine.

3.Cut out the shapes from the snowman template. There are three circle shapes for the body. Then a hat, scarf, nose, eyes, and buttons.

4. Use a solid color background paper such as blue for the sky, gray for a dark snow storm, or red for a festive look.

5. Glue the circles onto the background paper with a glue stick. Stack them one on top of the other biggest to smallest.

6. Now it is time to decorate your snowman. Color in the snowman pieces or trace them on construction paper. Then cut them out and they are ready to be added to your snowman. Add arms, buttons, eyes, nose, scarf, and a hat with a glue stick.

7. On the picture you can add trees in the background, snow on the ground, and snowflakes in the sky. Make the extra decorations with paper, paint, or even color them on the paper.

8. Now you have a cute snowman to hang up for decorations, add to a bulletin board, or hang on the fridge.
