Snowman Crafts for Kids
White sweatshirt / t-shirt
Black Fabric Paint
Orange Fabric Paint
Brown Fabric Paint
Your white sweatshirt is the background of your snowman. Using your fingers tips dip them in black fabric paint and make eyes and a coal mouth in the center of the sweatshirt. Using your whole finger did it into the orange fabric paint to create a carrot nose. On the bottom off to the sides use the brown to draw stick arms coming up from the bottom of your shirt.
Everyone will want an original Snowman Sweatshirt soon.
On the wood bead you will need to draw a face with the black sharpie and orange sharpie (for the carrot nose). Next you will need to cut a rectangle and a square out of your black felt. Fold the rectangle into a circle, gluing the two ends together. Once you have done this snip small 2 or 3 cm snips into one end of the circle. Glue that end onto the square to form a hat. With the scrap felt you have left you can cut out ovals and then cut one end off to make them look like mitten. Next you will need to place your wax paper out and squeeze a blob of glue out onto the wax paper. Place the bead in the middle along w/ the black hat, black mittens and a scrap of thin material for the scarf. Leave to dry, when dry it will look like the snowman melted.
Light Blue Paper
Orange Scrap Paper
Paint only the palm of your hand. Place the palm print down on paper. Do this three times, one on top of the other. Next either cut out a black hat and orange carrot nose out of paper or wait until paint is dry and draw them on. Don’t forget to draw on the stick arms you can also use real twigs for the arms if you choose.
