Here’s an easy and fun craft for kids to do during Winter Break – a paper plate snowman! This is quick to set up, and you probably already have everything on hand:
- 2 or 3 paper plates
- construction paper (we used black, orange and blue)
- hole punch
- glue stick and/or tape
- yarn, thread, twine, staples, string, twist ties… something to hold the snowman together.
Cut out eyes, mouth, buttons, nose, hat, and scarf from construction paper. I just winged the pattern for the scarf. Glue or tape all the construction paper pieces onto the paper plates to create the snowman’s features.
To connect the snowman pieces together, punch two holes in the bottom of the head, and two in the top of the body. Tie each set of holes together. Repeat for the bottom of the snowman, if you’re adding that. (As you can see, I don’t have a hole punch.)
Our snowman is hanging up high out of baby’s reach, and is kept company by some tissue paper snowflakes.
Thanks to Naptime Adventures for the original idea for this craft.
