This cute little shape snowman is another one that we came up with to suit both of my little ones. my son really enjoyed using the scissors to cut out his shapes and my little girl loved gluing down the shapes that i had cut out for her to build her snowman! As an added bonus my daughter was even able to identify circles after making hers – it was a very proud mummy moment! It’s scary how time flies, i remember when crafting was just her using her hands to spread paint everywhere (including the walls!) Now she joins in with ‘big kid’ crafts and is starting to recognise shapes! it’s just crazy how fast that time has passed. If you enjoy these shape crafts let us know and we’ll share some more ideas
Here’s what we used
- Coloured backing card
- Coloured paper
How to make a shape snowman craft
You’ll want to start by cutting out the shapes for your snowman. We used circles for; the body, head, eyes, mouth and buttons and then rectangles for; the arms, fingers, hat and scarf and then a triangle for the nose.
Start by gluing down the main body circles of the snowman. Glue on the arms and fingers either side of the body.
Add the rectangles for the hat and scarf…
Then finish off by adding some circles for the eyes, mouth and buttons. Then finish by sticking down the triangle nose! Why not decorate the snowman some more by adding some round snowflakes or maybe some square presents?! Our snowmen are called Jingle and Ben, what did your little one name theirs?
