The weather has been bitter cold this season, and it’s been hard to let the kids play outside. I don’t want their face in a screen constantly, so I try to come up with things we can do together to beat their boredom. This year we made this Paper Doily Snowman and he turned out so cute! He’s very affordable and you’re going to love making them with your kids!
You will need:
Paper Doilies in different sizes (we found a multi-pack at the dollar store)
Glue Sticks (optional)
To make your Paper Doily Snowman you will need to decide how large you want him to be. Initially we were going to glue ours to a piece of construction paper, but my daughter decided she needed to recreate him again and again, so we didn’t glue anything and just made several pieces to interchange.
We cut our smallest piece out of one of the smaller doilies for his head. We just trimmed the lacy edges off and it was perfect! The pack we bought had a lot of sizes so you can choose from. You could make a very large snowman, or a smaller version like we did in the picture!
Use the markers to draw black dots on for his eyes. Then draw on a carrot nose with an orange marker! You could even give him a hat, scarf, rosy cheeks and more!
Let your kids get creative with what he has on, or the color of his buttons etc. We had a lot of fun doing this, and it didn’t make a mess or take a lot of prep, which was awesome. Those are my kind of crafts to do!
