Hello friends! My name is Heather and I blog over at Twin Dragonfly Designs. Today I am sharing this simply adorable winter craft made with a free snowman template and printable glitter paper. I recently started homeschooling one of my little guys and we used this project as part of his art curriculum. He loved it and we had so much fun together creating all sorts of snowmen!
- Core’dinations Printable Glitter Paper
- Printable Snowman Template
- Craft Scissors or Kid Safe Craft Scissors
- Scotch Glue Stick
- Ink Jet Printer
Step One. Download the printable snowman template and print onto Glitter Prints paper. This paper is really neat because the glitter is built right into the paper and creates a unique, sparkly image when printed on.
Step Two. Cut the different parts out of the snowman template. This was the perfect activity for my eight year old to work on his fine motor skills. He particularly enjoyed adding a mustache to his snowman!
Step Three. GAther all of the snowman parts. We cut out three circle shapes from silver glitter paper to use as our snowman body. I simply traced circles onto the back of the paper and my son cut them out.
Step Four. Create a snowman! The paper is a really sturdy cardstock so you could even create a little snowman making kit for the kids to use again and again. We glued our assembled snowman parts onto colored cardstock for a more permanent masterpiece.
Here is my little guy with his finished project. He was very proud of his snowman and ended up creating an entire snowman family! If you’re looking for a more challenging snowman craft for older kids and adults, check out this 3D paper snowman project.
