Snowy Craft Day

On a snowy day like today there’s nothing better to do than take out all of the art supplies and get crafting! This is a craft I made a few weeks ago to kick off the winter story time season. This paper plate snowman is a super easy craft and it requires materials that one can usually find lying around the house.

 

For this craft you will need:

1. One large white paper plate
2. One small white paper plate
3. Two different colors of construction paper, plus a little orange for the carrot nose
4. Wiggle eyes
5. Ribbon
6. Hole punch
7. Black marker
8. Various embellishments, such as buttons, glitter or sequins.

First, cut out a hat using one shade of construction paper, and then use the other shade of construction paper for the hat ribbon. Glue the hat to the small paper plate and decorate the snowman’s face using the marker, carrot nose and wiggle eyes. Next, punch a hole in the bottom of the small paper plate and also on the top of the large paper plate. Using the ribbon, tie the two plates together, creating the snowman’s bow tie. Decorate the snowman using the buttons and various embellishments. Finally, make a cup of cocoa and admire your creation!
