What You'll Find on This Page
With the colder weather outside I know that I’ve always done far more crafts with my kids outside during winter. As much as I agree with and love the idea of going outside in all weathers, I’m just not going to spend all day at the beach in December – sorry!
I like to lean in to what the weather is like around us and make the most of it so I love any kind of winter crafts that are inspired by the colder weather, snow and ice inspired activities are perfect for this time of year.
This free igloo craft template has two different designs both of which you’ll find in the PDF file.
The first is a basic outline of an igloo while the second design has more details on it showing the compressed snow bricks that they’re made of.
You can print out both designs or just opt for the one that suits your project best.
What Should I Print My Igloo Template On?
Of course the thing about igloos is that they’re white due to the snow they’re built with so any igloo crafts and activities can look a bit washed out on normal white printer paper.
A good alternative to this is printing onto blue paper instead which will make your white igloo really stand out.
If you’re using a lot of paint or glue in your craft or heavier items such as cotton balls you might want to also choose to print onto colored cardstock rather than paper as this will cope with the weight or additional liquid better.
Igloo Craft Ideas
Coloring is an easy activity for kids although obviously it can cause more issues when something the thing you’re coloring is white.
You can absolutely use these outlines as igloo coloring pages, just be certain that you have white crayons, markers or coloring pencils or you could always try coloring with a pale blue or gray.
You can either buy paper squares ready made or cut normal white printer paper into squares yourself.
Cover your igloo with glue and stick the squares onto them like a mosaic to make your blocks of snow.
Sponges are great materials for kids to paint with and sponges are something that if you don’t already have are pretty easy and cheap to get hold of.
To make a igloo craft with sponges just pour some paint into a dish and then dip a square or rectangular shaped sponge into it.
Dab your painted sponge onto the igloo to make ice block shapes.
With their squishy, fluffy texture, cotton balls are a great material for crafting with and their fairly large size means that they’re ideal for the little hands of kids in preschool or kindergarten too.
All you need to do is cover your igloo in glue and then stick your cotton balls onto it.
If you like you could also use scissors to cut a door shape out of black construction paper and then glue that on too.
Over the year’s we’ve received a fair amount of bubble wrap in the mail where it’s been used for packaging and my kids have always really enjoyed using it for painting.
To make sure my kids don’t become totally covered in paint (it happens!) the best way I’ve found to paint using bubble wrap is to make it into a little envelope shape using tape that they can then put their hands in and then dab this into some paint before putting it onto the picture to make lots of little painted circles on it.
Over the years we’ve done a fair bit of painting with pom poms but why not give this more of a winter theme by painting with marshmallows?
As long as you’re happy your child won’t try to eat them pour a little paint into a dish then dab your marshmallow into the paint before dabbing it onto your igloo to make the ice brick shapes.
More Free Winter Craft Templates
We’ve got tons of free templates for kids crafts and winter is always a big theme for us, after all we tend to do more crafts when it’s cold outside and we can’t spend as much time outdoors!
These templates are a great way to get creative with your kids without spending a fortune, with each template you’ll always find some ideas for how you can use them and most of our ideas will always be with cheap materials you either already own or can get hold of easily without spending lots of money.
These templates are all on a snow and ice theme so they’d be great to use together as part of a winter theme and if you’re in a classroom setting I’m sure they’d look fantastic as part of a bulletin board display.
This snowflake template is always really popular and has two different designs, one large snowflake and three smaller snowflakes together on one sheet.
This icicle template is one of our newer ones and I like the idea of decorating it with aluminium foil.
Finally why not check out our snowman template? I’ve shared on this page a video of a really fun resist art project we did using this template so that you can see it in action too.
