We love using puffy paint! Take a look at the puffy paint melted snowmen we created last year.  Daisy was 2 years old when she made her last melted snowman, so you can see how easy and how much fun it is even for toddlers. 

Scroll down to see a video of this activity in action.

If you currently have snow and you are looking for more snow themed projects we have a whole list of snow crafts and activities for kids for you to take a look at.  We also have a winter book list with 20 suggested Winter reads for kids. 


You will need:


  • Printable melted snowman poem (scroll to bottom of page)
  • Blue, black and orange card
  • Shaving foam (cheap shaving foam is perfect)
  • White PVA school glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Scraps of felt or material
  • Twigs
  • Buttons
  • Silver or snow flake glitter (optional)



Melted Snowman Poem


Print the melted snowman poem out (scroll down for the printable).  We have 3 versions of the printable poem available. A large version of the poem to read or display and 2 versions with a space to make your own melted snowman above the poem (one with a title and one without). As part of this printable melted snowman pack we also have a melted snowman writing frame so children can complete the sentence 'My snowman melted because...'

I would recommend printing the poem out onto blue card to create a nice contrast between the card and the melted snowman. 

I made a little snowman, 
I made him just like that. 
The sun can out and melted him,
And now my snowman's flat. 

After reading the cute poem have fun painting your own melted snowman.  You could use white paint and glue on any snowman accessories, but we love using puffy paint!



Snow Puffy Paint Recipe


To make snow puffy paint mix together shaving foam and white PVA school glue in a bowl.  You will need roughly a 1:1 ratio of glue and shaving foam.  You don't really need to measure it though, you can get away with slightly more shaving foam than glue. You might want to sprinkle a little sparkly snow glitter on top too! 


Melted Snowman Craft


Cut out a snowman hat from black card, carrot nose from orange card and a scarf from scraps of craft felt or material. You will also need googly eyes, buttons and to collect some small twigs from the garden.

Spoon the puffy paint onto the blue card above the melted snowman poem. The thicker you spoon on the puffy paint the more 3D it will look once dry. Place all the snowman accessories onto the puffy paint. There is enough glue in the snow puffy paint for the accessories to stick where they are placed.

Once you are happy with where all the snowman accessories have been placed leave the melted snowman to dry.  Once dry he will remain puffy and a little spongy to touch.

Daisy (aged 3) wanted to add snow to her snowman's hat and some twig legs as well as arms to her melted snowman. I love all the extra buttons she has added! We sprinkled a bit of extra snow glitter on top of our completed snowmen.

Melted snowman art would look great displayed on the wall. As well as being a fun toddler activity it would make a fun class project, every melted snowman would be completely individual.
