Do you want to build a snowman? Snowman crafts are perfect for the cold Winter weather that seems to have arrived as we begin the new year. Here are my nine favourite Snowman art and craft ideas for kids (check out these snowman ideas too! I love the DIY snowman mug). I found them using the #kidscrafts101 hashtag on Instagram. Are you on Instagram? I am starting to love it over there, you can find us at @messylittlemonster.
Over the Christmas period I was delighted to be asked to guest judge the #kidscrafts101 challenge hosted by Red Ted Art and Incredibusy on instagram. If you would like to join the challenge just use the #kidscrafts101 hashtag to have a chance at being featured. It's a great place to find new art and craft ideas to try!
I was tasked with choosing just nine crafts from all the amazing crafts tagged, not an easy task! With the weather suddenly turning really cold and wintery as we have headed into the new year, I have decided to make a collection of snowman themed ideas.
Here are my favorurites. Click on the instagram account names to follow them on instagram for lots more ideas. I have also added links for full instructions for the activities where available. (from top left)
