Open Ended Snowman

We have not had a lot of snow in Ohio this year. My toddler is so excited to make a snowman, but has not been able to do that yet. Today, we decided to make our own winter fun with this open ended snowman. This craft is great for kids from three to five and can be done at home or in a classroom setting. We encourage you to use whatever materials you have on hand, but we will list what we used!

Materials Used

  • White Paper (We used three pieces.)
  • Blue Construction Paper
  • Googly Eyes
  • Crayons
  • Glue (We used bottled glue, but if I had to do it again, I’d use a glue stick.)

We started by cutting out three circles from the white paper. My daughter is new to using scissors, so she needed assistance, but older children should be able to do it themselves. She decided to use craft scissors with a decorative edge. I let her decide how big each circle should be.

Next, I gave her the glue and had her glue down the circles on the paper. I did not offer her any guidance with this.

After the circles were glued on, I helped her glue on the eyes.

To finish the snowman, I asked my toddler to tell me what other parts she wanted on her snowman and we drew them together. She is newly three, so she needed more help with this than a four or five year old would. The end result was a unique and adorable snowman!
