Snowman Crafts, Snacks and Activities

Snowman Crafts, Snacks and Activities

It's the season to build Snowmen - tra la la la laaa la la la la. 
Here in the UK, its got really chilly all of a sudden. I can also now announce - we've had our first sighting of snow here in the Midlands! Yipeeee! Public Transport is cancelled, schools are shut along with attractions and places of worship! 7 inches deep here at the moment which is the deepest we've had in a good 7 years or more. There is something so magical about snowy down pours. We always get so excited! Do you do the snow dance? We used to do this in the hope we would encourage the snow fairies to get a move on for a thick covering during the night so schools would close and we could have all day to play in the snow! Snow dance hasn't been needed today as the snow has been pouring fast all day and continues to do so! We've already had news that we can switch the alarms off tomorrow and enjoy a lazy, snowy morning.

I wanted to share with you a great list of crafts and activities that link to Snowmen/Snow. I'm sure we will be snowman crafting tomorrow!

Snowman Crafts, Snacks and Activities

Snowman Handprint Keepsake - Learning and Exploring Through Play
You have loved this all year long! It has remained in our top 5 posts since we published it which is excellent! It's also our most popular post of all time!

Finger Print Snowman Ornament - Messy Little Monster
Completely adorable, simple and easy to make. These decorations can make an appearance out each year to remind you of the days when your children were little! Why not make one with a snowman family on using the fingerprint from everyone in your family? Each person gets to make their own snowman using their tips!!

Toilet Roll Snowmen - Natural Beach Living
A great activity to set up for children to enjoy freely! Look how super cute they are! You could use them in a small world set up once they dry!

Hand Printed Snowman Bauble - Simple Fun for Kids
These would be lots of fun to make and great to gift to family and friends!

Melted Snowman using Collage Medias - Mom Inspired Life 
A lovely craft that is accessible for the youngest of children! Perfect opportunity to practise and develop scissor skills.

Sensory Bottle - Little Bins for Little Hands
Have you ever made Sensory Bottles before? Children love them! Their possibilities are endless and they come highly recommended by us!

Marshmallow Snowman Ornament - The Best Ideas for Kids 
Who doesn't love marshmallows? Get yourself a large bag from the supermarket and get the children to fill a bauble to gift to friends and family OR to take home after a busy day at school. You could even look at scooping up some hot chocolate, put it in a bag and include a candy cane to enjoy snowman soup as part of their Christmas Eve Box.

Snowman Pretzel Rod Snacks - Learning and Exploring Through Play
You cant beat a play out in the snow - but that satisfaction when you return indoors in the warm arrrghhh! Nice warm drink and a snack for comfort. These rods are great for that and I love the children can make them too!

Melting Snowman Slime - Little Bins for Little Hands
Who doesn't love slime? In fact Little Bins for Little Hands BY FAR create THE BEST SLIME EVER! They have slime inspiration for every season, celebration, festival and interest!

Snowman Stamping - Learning and Exploring Through Play
I just love how these turned out! Again - they are fabulous for young children. Why not use the prints to create card fronts or wrapping paper?

An invitation to play - Snowman Factory - Buggy and Buddy
Oh oh oh! I love this! Set this activity up in your homes/settings and just watch as children venture over to create! Add glitter to your playdough to make it even more inviting!

Pinecone Snowmen - Non Toy Gifts
Oh my! I've never seen snowmen made from pine cones before!! I love them!!

Snow Globe Craft - JDaniel4SMom
There is something quite special about snow globes! Well now with this craft in mind your children can create their very own snow globes that feature themselves!

Light up Snowmen Craft - Mosswood Connections
Love these charming little snowmen! You could make a den once they are all good to go and take the snowmen inside! The children would love it!

Cupcake Snowmen - I Heart Crafty Things
We all have people who inspire us and oh my, this website is just full of the most beautiful crafts! Here is another cute snowman craft using cupcake liners! How clever!!

Puffy Paint Snowmen - Messy Little Monster
This activity ticks so many boxes for me! Great for the senses, process over product, no right or wrong way to create. It's fabulous! I've never tried puffy paint! I must give it a go soon!

Snowman Crafts, Snacks and Activities

Melted Snowman Painting - Learning and Exploring Through Play
A very simple snowman craft that is perfect for any age - especially toddlers and preschoolers!! There is no right or wrong way to do it and the messier the project gets the better it looks!!

Pom Pom Snowman Craft - Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds
It has never crossed my mind to create figures with pom poms like this - don't they look great! You could use them on card fronts or add them to small world set ups.

Snow Globe Snowman Craft - Red Ted Art
Another great snow globe craft! Red Ted Art is the place to go for craft inspiration! I don't think there is anything that Maggy hasn't got covered!

Build a Snowman - How Wee Learn
A great way to recycle the toilet rolls. If that doesn't float your boat and something you would rather steer away from - you can always reuse your kitchen towel rolls!

Build a Snowman Kit - Mama Papa Bubba
What a lovely idea! They can be made in advance and ready for snowman building activities when you have snowfall!

Create a 2D Snowman - Fun with Mama
Now what an invitation to create! I adore the bright colourful crafts and each child would create something completely different!

Marshmallow Snowman Snacks - One Creative Mommy
Oh cute! Almost too cute to eat!

Spool Snowman Craft - Learning and Exploring Through Play
I adore this craft! It comes together so well! It's definitely a snowman decoration that I would have out on my Christmas tree each year!

Paper Snowman Craft - Non Toy Gifts
Are your children working on following a set of instructions? This craft may be a great way to practise this skill.
