Winter Craft: Cotton Ball Snowman

I hope you are all enjoying the iHomeschool Network 5-day blog hop , as you well know by now my topic is Winter Crafts for Kids!




Today I’m sharing our fun and super easy cotton-ball snowman craft. This craft is totally easy, and uses supplies that for the most part you should be able to find in your home already. So no running to the store to get supplies today!





  • 1 Sheet Blue Construction Paper: For base
  • White construction paper: cut in wave for snow base
  • Orange Construction paper: cut in triangle for nose
  • Black construction paper: hole punch for eyes and buttons, trace hat shape and cut out
  • Brown Construction Paper: Cut 2 twig arms per snowman
  • Several Cotton Balls
  • Optional: Sparkly fake snow for sky decoration, or snowflake stickers, or just draw them on with markers!
  • Glue




I traced 3 circles onto the blue construction paper so the kids would know where to glue the cotton balls. Next they glued on the snowy landscape, and then started in with cotton balls to fill up the drawn circles.



Next they added the nose, eyes, and hat to finish off their snowmen. Finally, they dabbed on some extra glue dots and added some fake snow to the background just for effect.



After making the snowmen, we read the Snowman Trinity Poem from Spell Out Loud!

    Thank you! Today was our only snow day of the year and the kids were disappointed it melted immediately (southern MS). They really enjoyed this craft. Julie

      Julie we feel your pain! No snow days for us so far and probably won’t be any.
      Seems we rarely ever get accumulations anymore and my kiddos are dying to sled!
      We’re in Lou, KY!
