Let me set the scene for you: It’s a Saturday. I’m eight months pregnant, fighting a terrible head cold, and my husband has to pull a double shift. To top it off – we’re getting a snowstorm so the kids and I can’t leave the house.

As much as I’d like everyone to think I’m all sunshine and rainbows, I’m mom-enough to admit I was going a little batty at the idea of a long day indoors with nothing planned.

So I pulled out my trusty art bin, put on some Christmas music, told the kids to stay in their pajamas, and we got to work!

One hour later, after a flurry of paper scraps and a small glitter explosion, we had our finished product: Snowmen made out of our names!

They turned out so well I turned our template into a free download for you!

Supplies

Here’s a list of supplies needed to make your own snowmen – pretty basic stuff, I’m sure you have most of it (if not all of it) already on hand!

      • Snowman template (click here to download)
      • Construction paper or cardstock (various colors)
      • Scissors
      • Tape, glue, or glue dots
      • Markers
      • Extra decorating supplies: glitter, crayons, pom-poms, buttons, whatever you like!

Note:  If you have little ones and do lots of crafts be sure to pick up some Glue Dots! They are, by far, my favorite time-saving creative tool!

Directions

These snowmen are so easy to make! Just follow the simple steps below:

  1. DOWNLOAD + PRINT. Download the template by clicking here. Then print and cut out your pieces.
  2. GLUE. Glue together your snowman. You’ll need one “snowball” for each letter of your name, plus one extra for a head.
  3. WRITE. Write your name on the snowman body. One letter per circle. (You can adjust this based on your child’s age and writing skills. My five-year-old wrote his own name. For my three-year-old, I wrote her name in pencil and she traced over the letters with a black marker.)
  4. DECORATE. Add hats, scarves, faces, and arms. Get creative!

After we were done my son hung up these masterpieces in our “art gallery” (also known as: our hallway). Every time I walk by they make me smile!
