It would also be great to use for a classroom or bulletin board display, you could print off a copy for each pupil and get them to design their own snowman, all you’d need for this is some pens to add features like buttons and coal eyes but it might also be fun to grab some little sticks to glue on as the snowman’s arms.

What Paper Should I Use For Making Snowman Crafts?
As a good rule of thumb if you’re using using white paint or paper to colour your snowman then you’ll want to print it onto colored paper to make sure that it shows.
Blue paper is normally best for this as it gives that wintery feel where as black (while looking great with white!) won’t show the outline of your template.
If you are using this template to make resist art then white paper is perfect and normal white printer paper is great too if you just want to design your own snowman.
If you are doing a craft or activity that is going to use a lot of paint or glue then you might want to opt for cardstock instead of paper as this is a bit stronger.
Snowman Craft and Activity Ideas
Snowman crafts are really easy to make for kids because after all, if a bit of ‘snow’ goes amiss then it’s just like snow, right? You never can tell exactly where each flake will land!
Play dough mat – Print the template onto white paper (you can laminate it if you wish) and use it as a playdough mat. Use your playdough to ‘color in’ the snowman’s hat and make his eyes, nose and mouth. How about adding some accessories with a scarf or some buttons? You could make the arms out of playdough or use sticks for them.
Mosaic – Grab the scissors and use this template to make our snowman mosaic craft, just add black paper for the top hat. Scrap paper or construction paper are both great for this.
Resist Art – Make some easy snowman art using this template and a resist art process. This activity is really good fun and you can check out the video showing how it’s created too.
Cotton ball snowman – You could use this as a snowman template for cotton balls. Simply cover the main part of the snowman’s body with glue and use cotton balls to cover this, making a fun three dimensional craft. This is a great activity for toddlers and preschoolers due to the size of the cotton balls.
Pom pom painting – Grab some pom poms and use this template as an outline to make our pom pom painted snowman. You could try this with cotton balls too if you have some left over!
Finger painting – For a super simple way to create some artwork use finger painting to colour in your snowman.
Cotton bud painting – Our cotton bud painted snowman craft was made using this template.
Design your own snowman – Use this template as a drawing or painting prompt. Sometimes the easiest ideas are the ones that have worked best with my kids so just print this off and hand it over with a load of markers and see how your child decorates it.
