A snowman craft or activity is perfect for any time during the winter, not just at Christmas. Even if, like me, you live in an area that doesn't receive much snow, and even then rarely over Christmas, children can still join in the fun by making some pretend snowmen to use as Christmas or Winter decorations, or trying out some other brilliant snowman crafts.
I love footprint crafts, because they also act as a lovely memento. This footprint snowman is really sweet.
These little felt snowman decorations might be too complicated for a toddler to sew, but they could help stick the face and buttons on and they would make lovely gifts.
You can make a really simple snowman from a cereal box, or any other box that you happen to have around.
You can't beat toilet roll tubes when it comes to crafting, and I love the way that this toilet roll tube snowman is so simple, yet still realistic!
Obviously the best snowman activity is to get out in the snow and build an actual snowman. If you live in an area where you can expect some snow, a fun idea is to put together a snowman kit. Then you will have everything that you might need right there as soon as it snows!
If you have no prospect of snow then you can always build yourself Frost-free the Snowman with boxes and white material!
With a bit of preparation, you can make a felt snowman set for your toddler. Cut a background and some shapes to decorate him from felt and let your toddler decide where the pieces should go. This activity is great for teaching a small child about body parts.
