I was looking for some winter crafts yesterday, and guess what I found? A post I did last year that I had forgotten all about – oodles of snowman crafts!
Perhaps it is just what you were looking after as well?
Here is my original post friends:
We have had our first snow flurries. We have also had 3 anxious little ones watching those snow flurries and trying with all of their might to will them into staying on the ground. But not yet. Very soon I am sure, but not quite yet.
So since they cannot be building real snowmen yet, we thought it time for some snowman crafts!
As I was looking at Pinterest (which is booming right now – are you following along? Please do! You can follow me here: How Wee Learn on Pinterest) I found hundreds of snowman crafts for kids!
I found snowmen that were round, some that were square, some that were even shaped like diamonds – and then I realized that these snowman crafts could be a wonderful tool to help my little ones with their shapes.
So here is how we learn about shapes with Snowman Crafts!
Circle Snowman Crafts:
Washer Snowman Ornament or Pendant – a cute way to make a snowman using 3 little circles.
Snowman Circle CD Ornaments by Happy Hooligans – one nice big circle for a cute snowman face!
Oval Snowman Craft:
Snowman Oval Paint Stirrer by Enchanted Homeschooling Mom – these snowmen are so cute – I think we will make some to poke outside in our garland.
Diamond Snowman Craft:
Egg Carton Snowman by Sassy Dealz – we certainly have a few extra egg cartons these days (I have recently learned the role chilly weather plays on egg production)
What about 3D Snowman Crafts? You betcha! For those little ones learning about three-dimensional shapes, these crafts are perfect!
Cube Snowman Crafts
Wooden Block Snowman Ornament by Twin Dragonflies – this would be such a nice keepsake if you used a wooden block with the child’s name letter on it.
Mix n’ Match Snowman Craft by Chicken Babies – a fun craft, and a game to play again and again!
Sphere Snowman Craft
Sphere Snowman Ping Pongs (and a launcher!) by Buggy and Buddy – this snowman craft has my kids name written all over it!
Cylinder Snowman Craft:
Tin Can Snowman Craft by Hands on as we Grown – this craft is a wind chime as well. And the possibilities with this one are endless!
This is such a fun way to tie in some hands-on learning about shapes with seasonal crafts. We love ‘shaping’ (ha!) our crafts and activities to the seasons, a lovely way to create a rhythm throughout the year.
And when the snow finally does stay on the ground, I cannot wait to see the snowmen my little ones come up with after doing these crafts!
