Build A Snowman (Printable Craft Templates)

free build a snowman printable craft for preschool and toddlers

With winter drawing in and the days getting colder and shorter, what better way to keep your little ones entertained than with this simple build a snowman craft?

This winter activity is great for developing your child’s cutting and sticking skills, and an awesome chance to practice some pencil control and fine motor skills as well!

These cute printable snowman templates are great for preschoolers to use because they’re so simple for them to put together!

And there’s a color and a plain template – so your little ones can choose the colors and decorate their own winter snowmen!

It could also make a lovely activity for anyone having a winter themed party!

Here’s some more free ‘build-a-‘ characters you may want to check out, if you get a few your little ones can mix and match – who knows what crazy monsters they’ll create (pirate hat and hook on a robots body with a dragon’s head and wings – meet the Robopiratedragon!).

I’ve created quite a lot more characters and animals and will be uploading them soon – so be sure to check back regularly.

What Skills Can Your Children Learn And Practice?

When using this build a snowman template, your children will have the chance to practice and develop some skills such as:

  • Cutting Skills – if you feel they’re ready, you can let them have a go at cutting out the pieces all by themselves – they’ll need to be careful and have good scissor control if they want to cut out the pieces neatly
  • Fine Motor Skills – when they’re sticking and picking up and moving the parts and placing them where they need to go
  • General Knowledge – putting this snowman together can be a great chance to talk about what the different parts are made of and why water turns into snow when it freezes
  • Pencil Control – if you print off the black and white version they can practice their pencil control and develop hand strength through coloring.

This simple snowman craft will also give them a chance to practice their concentration and perseverance skills as they may find it tricky to place the pieces exactly where they want them to go.

How To Prepare This Build a Snowman Craft

First you’re going to want to download the free snowman templates by clicking on the ‘click here for free printables’ image at the bottom of the page – I’ve made a color and a black and white version!

Other materials you’ll need:

Once you’ve downloaded the templates, you’ll need to print them off onto paper or card.

Then, you can cut them out. Or if you’d like your children to get some cutting practice, you can let them have a go.

Then you can stick all the pieces together to build your snowman.

It can be really nice to let you’re kids have a bit of free rein here and see if they can work it out – kind of like a puzzle.

If they’re struggling, the order I’d do it in is:

  1. Stick the eyes to the head
  2. Stick the hat to the head
  3. Stick the carrot nose to the head
  4. Stick the scarf on the body
  5. Stick the head to the body
  6. Stick the arms on the body
  7. Stick the coal buttons on the body

(I expect you could have worked that out but I do like to be thorough…)

The finished one should look something like this:

What a cute little snowman!

If you want to, you could always laminate the pieces before putting them together and use them as a puzzle. That way the different parts would be kept nice and they can use them again and again.

I’ve also created even more cute characters which I will be releasing in the coming weeks so they could use them together in a mix and match game as well (if you don’t want to miss them you can turn on notifications by clicking on the bell in the bottom right corner).

After that you’re all done!

Let your kids practice their cutting and sticking skills in a simple and fun way!

But Wait… There’s Also A Black And White Build A Snowman Craft Template!

I’ve also made a black and white version which would be an awesome way for your little ones to practice their coloring skills and personalize their snowan in their own way!

So why not crack out the pens, crayons, paints or collage (or all of them if you’re feeling adventurous) and let your kids get creative!

Cotton wool would be a great material to use to cover the body with and a pom pom for the bobble hat!

I’d love to see what they create!
