Are you ready for a snowman craft? It’s just about a week till Thanksgiving Day and we’ve had some snow here already so I think we’re good to go! This guy is so cute and so simple that you and the kids are going to love making him. And maybe want to make more than one! 😉 Check him out!
All you need to get started is some white paper, a small scrap of black paper, a pencil, a ruler, scissors, glue or double sided tape and some colored pens or makers.
Begin by cutting the white paper into strips approximately 1″ by 6″.
Take 1 strip of white paper and draw a snowman’s face in about the middle of the strip of paper.
Using either your glue or the double sided tape, attach the 2 ends of the paper strip together to form a circle.
Now cut a hat out of the scrap of black paper, making it as wide as the snowman’s head.
Glue only the small area shown in the following picture so that the snowman’s hat will stand up.
Place the hat on the snowman and hold it in place for a few seconds while the glue starts to set up.
Now you will add a few other strips of the white paper to make a chain. To do this, slide one strip through the snowman’s head, as shown in the next picture.
Using either tape or glue, again fasten the ends together in a circle. Continue adding strips of white paper until your snowman is as long as you’d like him to be.
I made my snowman 4 chains long but he can be as long as you like! 😉 I drew some buttons on his “belly”.
If you would like to be able to hang your paper chain snowman up, perhaps on your Christmas tree, you’ll need a piece of string or a paper clip. If you use string, just fold the string in half and tape the ends to the back of the snowman’s head. I’ll show you how to use the paper clip.
Open the paper clip up.
Using regular scotch tape, tape it to the back of the snowman’s head.
And you’re done! Now you have a cute snowman to use to decorate your house for winter! Have fun making paper chain snowmen! 🙂
