It’s getting close to winter!  Thanksgiving will be over before you know it and soon winter break for the kiddos will be upon us.

You are going to need all of the crafting ideas you can get to keep those young ‘uns busy!  We have put together a long list of snowman crafts for kids on this page to help you out.

When my kids were young, and of course for the kiddos in my second grade classroom, winter crafts were always exciting.  Kids just love the snow; remember when that first flutter of snowflakes fell each year?

The kids in my class would all run to the window to watch, with only the joy a child can have, as the first flakes of winter blew around in the air.

I will admit it; I still feel a burst of excitement when those first flakes fall!  But as much as I like to look at snow falling, I’ve become a bit of a curmudgeon when it comes to being outside in the snow and cold.

That’s why I love snow crafts!  And your kids are going to love these snowman crafts too!

You will find “everything snowman” on this page.  Looking for some snowman ornaments to get started on early?  We have ‘em.  Winter snowman decorations for your home?  Yep, they are right below!

Snowman Crafts For Gifts

Although any of these snowman crafts for kids to make would be perfect to give as a gift, be sure to take a look at the Snowman Fingerprint Craft

I took this snowman craft for little kids one step further and used the idea to make snowman gifts for the kids in my classroom to make and give to their parents!

I used acrylic paint and had them press the fingerprint snowman around a clear glass votive candle holder!  We put about three around the glass and used permanent markers to add snowman details, like the hats, arms, buttons and faces.

Plop a plastic light-up votive candle inside, and you have the perfect snowman gift for parents or grandparents!

The Snowman Clay Pots are a fun snowman craft gift for teachers, friends, or just about anyone!  The kiddos make the pots and fill them with treats for a fun and easy surprise!

And don’t forget to take a peek at the Snowman Card craft!  Everyone loves to get mail, and this seasonal snowman card is something the kids will enjoy creating.
