If you’re looking for an easy holiday activity for kids, you’ll want to try our paper plate snowman. A snowman is such a wonderful winter character to celebrate, both outdoors and indoors. When the snow gets a bit too chilly, warm up inside with some hot cocoa and a crafternoon of paper plate crafts. We have lots to choose from, but today we are all about this adorable snowman! This craft is also a fun way to talk about weather and introduce snow to little ones that might not have snow where they live.
So, if you’re feeling frosty, let’s get started!
Things you’ll need
- Paper plate
- Glue stick
- Black 1” pom poms
- Googly eyes
- Bottle cap
- Colorful construction paper
To make your snowman’s top hat, cut a rectangular strip of black construction paper for the brim and use the rest of the paper to cut out a square. Round off the edges with your scissors and cut out a strip of colorful paper for the accent ribbon on the hat. Glue these pieces together.
Choose a color for your snowman’s scarf and cut out two strips of paper the same width. Keep one strip the width of your paper plate. On the second strip, make some frayed edges and cut it in half on an angle.
Glue the two frayed ends onto one side of the main scarf strip, front and back. This will make the scarf look like it’s been tied on the side.
To make the carrot nose, cut out a small orange triangle and round off the edges.
Trace a bottle cap onto some pink paper and cut out two round, rosy cheeks.
Here are all of your happy snowman parts, ready to stick onto your paper plate!
Be sure to flip your paper plate over so the underside is front and forward. The face should protrude outward. Use your glue stick to glue down the eyes, cheeks, charcoal mouth, hat, and scarf.
Try adding some paper snowflakes or stickers to your snowman for additional detail! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Super Simple fam!
