Equipment

  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Bowl or plate for holding the white paper

Materials

  • Coloured card
  • White paper
  • Coloured paper or card for eyes, mouth, arms and scarf.

Instructions

  • From white paper cut out shapes that you will use to fill the snowmans body. This is a great way to practice scissor skills and you can also talk about what shapes and sizes you are cutting as you do so. Will you make squares, rectangles or triangles?
  • As you cut the paper put it into a bowl or on a plate so it doesn't end up making (too much!) of a mess. This would also be a good way to use up any scrap paper that you have.
  • Take a piece of coloured card and draw an outline of a snowman on it - one large circle and a smaller one on top.
  • 'Colour in' the two circles with your glue so that the snowman's body is covered with glue.

  • Place the white bits of paper all over the snowman's body, leaving a small gap if possible between each piece to form a mosaic design.
  • From brown paper or card cut out two long rectangles to form the snowman's arms and glue these into place.
  • Make a scarf for your snowman by cutting out three thin rectangles and gluing these onto your snowman.
  • Cut circles from black card to make the eyes and mouth and a triangle from orange card to make the snowman's nose and glue these on.

Notes

I would recommend using card rather than paper for this due to the large amount of glue involved.
We've used clear PVA glue as it's my daughters favourite and easy to see where you have drawn your snowman but you could use a glue stick instead.
