Open Ended Shape Snowman

Open ended shape crafts are a favorite in our house! Crafts like this encourage creativity and help with both color and shape recognition! 

Materials Needed

  • Blue or Black Construction Paper
  • Construction Paper Cut into a Variety of Shapes 
  • Glue

The aim of his craft is to encourage creativity, so we offered as little guidance as possible. We put glue on the paper and let our toddler pick shapes one by one. When she picked one, we would say things like “that is a white circle”.  If your child is preschool or early grade school age, you can give them a glue stick and let them do the gluing themselves. Our toddler is too young for that, so we did put the glue where we wanted it on the paper. 

The end product will be as unique as your little one! One of our favorite things about these open ended projects is how much the end result reflects who our toddler as a little person currently!

  1. So cute and fun! My boys both love making snowmen, and I would love to see what they come up with! They are both big enough to use a glue stick so I would let them do that. I like making it a learning lesson with the colors and shapes!


  2. Such a funny and interesting crafting. Maybe the younger children aren’t able to use the glue but with a little help the results are beautiful and creative.


    1. The possibility for extras is pretty much limitless! You could add like sequins or glitter as well! Our little artist just turned 2, so we wanted something super simple, but we love hearing how others modify things to make them their own.
