This cute and easy paper snowman craft is super simple to make and is an adorable winter or Christmas keepsake that can be kept for years to come! all you need are a few basic materials and our simple to follow guide to keep the kids entertained with this fun little craft on these cold winter days
Here’s what we used
Clean cardboard tp rolls (x2 or 3)
Paper (white, brown, black and orange)
Glue/double sided tape
How to make our cute paper snowman craft
Start by taking your tp roll tubes and cutting them down to three different lengths. A small one for the head, a medium one for the centre of the body and a large one for the base of the body.
Next take one of your tp roll sections and cut out a strip of white paper the same height as the tube and wide enough to wrap around it. Add double sided tape to the edges of the paper and then secure it around the tube.
Repeat the previous step with the remaining two tp sections until your snowman is completely white. Use your double sided tape to attach the three tubes together as above.
Cut out two stick arms and glue them in place inside the middle tube.
Next cut out and glue on your facial features and some buttons. We cut ours from coloured paper and then used our acrylic paint markers to add the details.
Add any other additional decoration such as our foam hat or ribbon scarf. Then finish off your snowman by cutting out a circular shape from your thick card and sticking it to the bottom of the snowman to help it stand. Aren’t they just the sweetest?

1 large Pom Pom
1 small Pom Pom
4 pipe cleaners (depending on the size of the pom poms you are using you may be able to use 2 pipe cleaners and chop them in half)
Two Googly eyes
How to make our adorable Pom Pom spider
Take your small pom pom (which will be the spiders head) and use a small blob of glue to attach it to the larger pom pom which will be the spider’s body.
Glue your pipe cleaners centrally across the underside of the spiders belly so that you have 4 legs sticking out each side.
Attach two eyes to the front of your spiders face and optionally add any details such as fangs on a mouth.
Finally bend the pipe cleaners upwards and then outwards to create the shape of the spiders legs. Aren’t these little Pom Pom spiders adorable? We added some stretchy elastic to the back of ours to make a web for the kids to bounce him up and down with!
This cute summer dragonfly craft is a great activity to keep the kids busy over the summer holidays and it looks adorable too! We used a glue gun to make our little butterflies but it works with pva or tacky glue too; you just need to be a little extra patient!
Here’s what we used
Tacky glue/glue gun/pva
How to make this cute summer dragonfly craft
Glue several smaller Pom poms across the length of the popsicle stick to make the body and a large one on the end to make the end. if you’re using pva or slow drying tacky glue then you will need to leave it a while to die.
Twist two pipe cleaners together in the middle to make a cross. Twist the centre of the pipe cleaners around the popsicle stick near the head and then bend each wing piece inwards and twist to secure.
Now twist another pipe cleaner around the stick at its centre and curl the ends around to make the antennae.
Glue on two Googly eyes and once dry your adorable popsicle stick dragonfly is ready to play with or display!
