* Thin white cardboard, compass
* Scissors, glue, cotton wool balls
* Red and black paint
* Red ribbon for scarf
* Yellow paper or thin cardboard for hat.
Using your compass, draw 2 circles on white cardboard, one approximately 11cm diameter for the head, and the other approximately 17cm diameter for the body. Cut them out and overlap them slightly, gluing them together.
Cover the head and body of the snowman in cotton wool. Add the scarf. I used glue to keep the scarf in place as I couldn’t get it to stay there on its own.
Paint cotton wool balls with black paint for eyes and buttons. Use another cotton wool ball and pull into the shape of a mouth and paint red.
Finish him off by adding his hat. His hat is made up of two pieces of card, the top one is rectangle and the brim of the hat has a slit in it to allow the top piece to slide into.
Snowman Craft for Young Children.
This is an excellent craft for encouraging young children learning to paint and glue, developing their fine motor skills. A very simple craft for little hands.
Draw the outline of the snowman and then encourage your pre-schooler to use his imagination to decorate his snowman using paints, glue, cotton balls, glitter and crepe paper.
Snowman Craft in a Sock
This snowman craft looks absolutely fantastic and so much fun to make.
You will need:
* 1 white sock
* 1/3 cup rice
* small strip of red fleecy for scarf
* 2 sticks for arms
Color the end of the sock and allow to dry. This will become the Snowman’s hat.
Put the rice into the sock first, which will help to hold the snowman stable. Then add plenty of padding and push the snowman into shape.
Add two elastic bands which will divide the head from the body.
Pull down the colored end of the sock and then turn half back up, to form the snowman’s hat.
Add his scarf, and draw on face and buttons. Add 2 sticks to form his arms. Use scissors to make 2 small holes in the side of the sock so you can push the sticks in.
