This collection of snowman crafts was first shared in November 2014! And have been updated and republished for your convenience!

Eventhough we don’t get that much snow here in the UK, when do get it (even the smallest amount) a snowman HAS TO BE MADE! So. Whilst we eagerly anticipate the snow, here we have a set of over 30 Snowman Crafts to keep the kids and me busy.

Who needs snow to enjoy the Winter??? And if you are stuck indoors on a “Snow Day” off school and are looking for Snow Day Activities, without getting cold and wet, maybe you too will be inspired to have a go at one of these ideas? There are all sorts of crafts to suit everyone – as well as some fun fun fun Marshmallow Snowmen towards the end of the post!

Here we go: Easy Snowman Crafts for you today!

Recycled Snowman Crafts for kids of all ages

Let’s get these snowman craft projects started with some eco friendly recycled snowman crafts – just because they are recycled, doesn’t mean they aren’t adorable snowmen!! Take a peak:

Toilet Roll Snowmen - Easy Snowman Crafts for Kids

TP Roll & Odd Sock Snowmen Bowling – this Toilet paper roll snowman has been a LONG TERM favourite here on Red Ted Art. I mean, what is not to love? Recycled paper tubes AND recycled socks – finally a use for all those “lone” socks, they make perfect snowman hats and scarves…. and hey presto you have yourself the basic supplies to make an adorable snowman! And not just that, you can PLAY with these cute little snowmen too and have a game of snowman bowling. If you are VERY keen, you can add numbers to the back of your snowmen and add a little maths practice. Woohoo! Toilet paper rolls really are the best!

cardboard tube snowman favours

Simlarly, you can decorate your Toilet paper Rolls and created some little DIY Gift Boxes, by making these oh so simple Snowman Gift Boxes! All you need is white paint, some markers or pens and an optional off cut of ribbon to make little scarves. Then fill with treats (Hershey’s kisses would be perfect) and done! A great back to school Teacher’s gift in January or party favour for Winter Birthdays! Some people aren’t keen on Toilet Paper Rolls, but you can use paper towel tubes too and just cut them in half!

Snowman Ornament Crafts for kids

Next in our adorable snowman craft line up, we have our Rainbow Snowmen Ornaments – another recycled craft, these snowmen are made from wine corks. And are easy to make (super quick too, if you exclude the drying time of the white paint). A little paint, hot glue and some accessories and you have a cute little snowman ornament.

Check out our newspaper and Yarn wrapping technique to make our cute Yarn Wrapped Snowman and Yarn Wrapped Knitting Ball ornaments! Best ideas don’t cost a lot and have little hacks to cut down on yarn usage. The newspaper centre really is very clever (and much much better than un-environmentally friendly styrofoam balls). You could even add a button nose, how cute would that be?!

Make Your Own Snowman Snap Game for school fairs or the classroom

Recycle Mason Jars to make these Easy Snowman Brownie in a Jar Recipe – a lovely gift idea for the New Year/ January/ Back to school Teacher’s Gift!

A really easy craft up next! One of our set of winter desk tidies.. make this super duper quick and easy Snowman Pen Pot – once again, supplies are simple – recycled a tin can, use some white printer paper or construction paper and make a snowman scarf with ribbon offcuts! Such a lovely way to decorate for the holiday season.

Paper Bag Snowman

One for little ones again. Turn the humble brown paper bag into this super fun Paper Bag Snowman!

egg carton snowman

Blue Sky Family Farms shows us how to make this wonderful Egg Carton Snowman Craft. Isn’t it fantastic? Who knew egg cartons could be this fun and could be turned into such a cute snowman craft!

Fun Snowman Crafts made from Paper

For many of the snowmen DIYs coming up, you simply need some white paper, pens and scissors to great some fabulous snowman activities!


One of our best ideas for kids, was this easy Paper Snowman Ornaments (promise, they look tricky.. but are super easy!). It is so popular with my readers. I am not surprised though.. as again the supplies needed are super simple – you basically only need printer paper (though construction paper is fine too) and a glue stick!

Adorable Kawaii Snowman Bookmarks! These little cute snowmen always make me smile as they are SOOO cute! And I am rather addicted to all bookmark crafts! All you need for this one is a paper clip, some light card and a little glue. Aren’t the little pair of mittens super cute too?

Adorable Snowman Bookmark designs – yes, more bookmark fun, and this time we have circular corner bookmarks – eh, how does that work? Yep.. ROUND corner bookmarks.. find out how!

3D Snowman And Friends – more paper fun with these adorable and cute Snowman and Friends Free printable templates. They are great for coloring and then either – using them as decor, as snowman party hats (just add some elastic) or to play with as paper puppets! One paper snowman craft, lots of uses!
