Snowman Hat

Snowman Hat

I know the first day of winter isn’t officially here yet, but our weather has recently decided that winter is happening. We haven’t got enough snow yet to make a snowman, but we brought the winter fun indoors with this fun snowman hat craft! This can be done at home or in a classroom!

Materials Used

White Construction Paper

Black Construction Paper

Orange Construction Paper

A Paper Towel Roll



Tape Or A Stapler

I started by cutting thick strips from the white construction paper and taping them together in a circle that was just slightly bigger than my daughter’s head. While I did that, I drew a large circle onto another piece of white construction paper and had my daughter cut it out. If your child is too young to use scissors or if you need to save time in a classroom setting, you can cut the circle out ahead of time!

Next, I drew a triangle on the orange paper for my daughter to cut out. After that, I helped her cut out two big circles and several little circles from the black paper. Next, we worked together to cut out a long rectangle and a square from black construction paper.

After the cutting was done, my daughter got to work gluing together her snowman face.

To finish our cute little snowman hat, I used tape to attach the snowman to the paper band. To help it stand up better, I cut a strip from a paper towel roll and taped it under the snowman.
