Printable DIY snowman crafts for kids, like this one, are the best! They’re easy, frugal, fun, and don’t require any snow. Yep, enjoy them in the comfort of your warm and cozy home. Download your free snowman craft below.
Look, playing in the snow may be fun for kids but for us grownups, it tends to be a lot of work. You have to bundle your kid (or kids) up in about 20 different layers. There’s always a mitten missing; someone always has to go to the bathroom right after you finish getting everything buttoned up. Only then can you finally trundle everyone outside … only to have to do it all in reverse about an hour later.
Another option is to stay inside, put on some cheery holiday music, make a cup of hot chocolate, and tackle a printable snowman paper craft, like the one in this post. It’s fun, free, needs little adult supervision, and doesn’t require gloves! What’s not to love?
Plus, this is a snowman craft preschool age and young kids can enjoy too. Some of the pieces in the snowman craft for toddlers and kids are a little small. For example, it may be difficult for your kid to cut out the carrot nose. That’s where a tiny bit of adult supervision may be required, but I promise, it’ll still be less work than getting all of your kid’s winter gear put on! 😉
Another thing I like about this snowman craft for toddlers and kids is that it has mental and cognitive benefits. In other words, this snowman arts and crafts project is entertaining and educational. For example, coloring can decrease stress and anxiety, cutting out the snowman craft pieces can help improve fine motor coordination, and putting the whole snowman paper craft together will help with spatial recognition and problem solving skills. Not too shabby for a snowman craft preschool and above project, right?
