A few days ago I shared with you our latest winter sensory bin, and I mentioned that I already had some other ideas for that artificial snow. It turned out to be such a fun crafting material! Yesterday we had fun with this simple snowman craft while watching the snow fall.
I traced 3 different sized cups to create the circles for our snowmen.
Once each circle was covered in glue, the kids had fun taking handfuls of artificial snow and sprinkling it onto the glue. We pressed it down a bit to make sure it would stick, and then I carefully tapped off the extra snow into a bowl to use later.
We let the snowman’s body dry before adding accessories.
I pulled out some ribbon for scarves, felt to make hats, and a few pipe cleaners for arms and carrot noses. My daughter suggested buttons for the eyes, and so I hunted out some matching buttons.
I loved watching them sort through the items and coming up with their own unique snowmen!
My daughter went all out, adding a coat, belt, and pom-pom ear muffs to her snowman craft.
Artificial snow created a fun 3-D snowman craft the kids were super proud of.
