Snowman Craft Ideas for Young Kids

1. Footprint Snowman

How to Make a Footprint Snowman

Your toddler will have fun with this one, but it can also get messy fast if you’re not careful!

Simply get the paint ready and paint your baby’s foot white! Press it down onto the colored paper, and lift slowly to leave a well-defined footprint.

Once you clean the foot and give the paint a minute to dry, you can then get to work on decorating the print with snowman features.

2. Snowman Fingerprint Craft

Snowman Handprint Craft

Now it is the hand’s turn. All of the fun and messiness applies here as we stamp those handprints and then turn them into a group of happy snowmen. 

This activity is a bit heavier gives a bit more creative freedom to add variety between each snowman. 

Scarves, beanies, earmuffs, top hats plus a whole range of colors add some character to this craft activity.  

3. Snowman Paper Plates
