Giant 3 Texture Snowman

Welcome winter, make snowmen and snowflakes! Build this giant 3 texture snowman with your preschoolers to welcome winter! Start with the 3 different size large white circles. Divide your class into three teams, each team gets a body part to build. You can use any 3 white materials you have on hand. The team with the base (the biggest circle) can glue on cotton balls; the team with the middle part can glue on white tissue paper; and the team the smallest circle can glue on millions of tiny styrofoam balls! Such fun! You can pick up a bag of millions of white hole punches, or use white glitter.

Tissue Paper Snowmen

Tissue paper snowmen are simple enough for toddlers. They can rip and squish the tissue paper before gluing onto the snowman shape. Then they just add the features.

Preschoolers will enjoy building the snowman first then adding tissue paper and features.

Melted Snowmen

Puddles of glue on wax paper begin the process for these cute snowmen that got too warm. Have the children add the features while the glue is still wet. Too cute!

Craft Stick Snowflakes

Three craft sticks, white glue and tacky glue, glitter, white paint (optional), yarn or string and woodsies (small wooden shapes). Teachers can help the children build the snowflake shape useing tacky glue to hold it together. Add the woodsies, and paint or cover with white glue and glitter. Oh, last tie a string and hang.

Negitive Space Snowflakes

These are made by placing masking tape, on the paper, in the shape of snowflakes. The children then paint covering the tape. You can encourage them to cover the whole paper with blue paint. Sprinkle on a little silver glitter for sparkle.
