13 Snowman Crafts & Activities for Kids

Last week we were in Utah visiting friends and family and it was freezing! We were so excited that we managed to get some snow while we were there and we even went tubing. My kids also got to build a snowman (I think it was their first time)!

Now that we're back home in sunny (and mostly warm) California, the kids are still talking about all of the snow fun they had. 

Since my kids are so excited about snow and snowmen, we'll be doing some new snowman crafts and activities next week. I preparation I thought I'd share a few of our favorites from over the years that we've already done. 

Here are 13 favorite snowman crafts and activities for kids! See one you want to try? Click on the links below to go to the full craft or activity tutorial.

We love to make snowman felt faces. This activity is from our archives! Click on the link to check out my adorable son when we was younger (he is now almost 7). Time sure flies!

You can bring the snow indoors and stay a little warmer while you build an indoor snowman.

Playing our build a snowman dice game is great for cold or rainy days when you are stuck inside. We even have a free printable we are sharing.

Have you ever gone on a snowman name hunt? This game is great for teaching name recognition!

Here's any easy way to reuse any packing peanuts you got over the holidays-- Packing peanut snowmen!

Making crayon resist snowman is so simple and can be such a neat surprise for little ones when the crayons pops through the paint. 

My little toddler and preschool friends love buttons and collages! These snowman button crafts are so open ended that everyone wants to make one.

Have you ever made puffy paint before? We made puffy paint snowmen in the microwave. The kids loved seeing how the paint puffed up!

Say thank you to friends and relatives for all of the sweet Christmas gifts by making them some snowman thank you cards!

Work on hand-eye coordination with our snowman toss game

Spread some kindness and make some snowman soap bottles for neighbors and friends! Hopefully the soap can help you stay healthy and happy in the new year and keep germs at bay.

Build some snowman sugar cookies. This is the perfect post-snowman building treat!

Or if you want a healthier snack, try making some snowman bananas on a stick!

If you try any of these snowman activities make sure to pop by and tell me how it went! I can never seem to get enough of snowmen, so if you see any other cute ideas send them my way!
