Do You Wanna Build a Snowman from Paper Snowflakes?

Making a snowman is always fun but here is a new little twist that I think you will like! On December 12, 2019, I showed you how to make paper snowflakes. If you missed that post, you can find it here: https://thekidsniche.com/2019/12/12/do-you-want-to-make-snowflakes/

Here are some of the snowflakes I made that day.

Paper snowflakes are the foundation for our snowman craft for today. You’ll need a piece of colored paper for the background and some white paper for the snowman. I chose blue construction paper for my background.

You’ll need 3 squares cut from the white paper. I made mine slightly different sizes since a snowman’s body is usually bigger than his head. I used a 4″ square for the bottom part of the snowman, a 3 1/2″ square for his middle and a 3″ square for his head. Using only the 2 larger squares, make them into snowflakes. ( https://thekidsniche.com/2019/12/12/do-you-want-to-make-snowflakes/) Cut the smallest square into a circle for the snowman’s head.

Glue the bigger of the 2 snowflakes to the bottom center of your background paper.

Next, glue the second snowflake on for the snowman’s belly.

Now draw your snowman a face on the white circle.

Glue the snowman’s head above the 2 snowflakes on the background paper.

Decorate your snowman in the way you want him to look. I cut a little square and a skinny little rectangle from black construction paper to make my snowman a black hat.

I drew 2 arms with a marker and made them look like sticks for my snowman’s arms.

To finish off my snowman, I used 2 pieces of red ribbon to make a scarf.

All done! Isn’t he a handsome fellow? I hope you had fun making a snowman with paper snowflakes! 🙂
