Decorate the Blank Snowman

After you print out the snowman body parts on your sheets of paper (regular printer paper works just fine!), it is time to decorate the different elements.

There are many ways to personalize the snowman parts; endless possibilities exist. 

If several kids complete this snowman activity, be sure they each have their own snowman printables. Each child should get their own paper snowman set.

Snowman Head

Give your snowman a big smile, or make him look grumpy. Add some colorful scarves or hats. I included a top hat if you want to have that.

Take some time with the facial features.

Some fun ideas include using buttons for the nose (attached with a bit of craft glue), adding the carrot nose, adding glasses, or adding a beard to make him look like Santa.

Remember, use the elements provided OR draw and color your own.

What a cute Christmas decoration that would be!

Snowman’s Body

Dress your snowman for the cold weather by adding a scarf. 

If you plan to use the free printable template as snowman coloring pages, it works best to color before you cut them out! 

The best part is each person’s will be different. Let your creativity flow and do not be afraid to experiment.

Cut Around the Snowman Outlines

After the decorating is complete, it is time to cut it out. 

Just cut out the parts you will use and get ready for the glue.

Put It Together

Once you finish cutting out the free printable, build a snowman and glue him (or her!) together. A glue stick will do the trick. 

It works best to play around with the elements on the snowman before gluing to ensure you love the way it looks.
