build a snowman free printable for kids

Snow day! Didn’t you love snow days growing up?! Waking up to no school and then spending all day sledding or building a snowman? Some of my best memories growing up involved the snow. After your kids or students have had their snow-time fill and you need them to have some “down-time”, simply print out our Build-a-Snowman printable. It’s an easy and fun winter-themed activity that will surely keep your little ones busy.

This winter printable is great for many ages, including kindergarten students, preschool kids or even toddlers will love this snowman. Really, I feel like this is a a great craft for children of all ages, especially elementary school students..

Use this as a winter craft, a Christmas activity or use it year-round, because why not? Snowmen are cool! Whatever the celebration, make your own snowman craft and celebrate the cold fun indoors.

Also, not only is this activity simple, free and fun, but it is also educational. It promotes practicing with scissors and creatively using your brain by building and personalizing your very own penguin!

How to use our Build-a-Snowman printable:

As always, we have two different versions of the Build-a-Snowman available: a colored snowman and a black & white snowman. So your little one can choose whether or not they want to decorate the snowman with their own colors and decorations or have the snowman already colored and ready to cut out.

If you chose the black & white snowman template, first you will need to color it. Your child or student can get really creative and color it with their favorite colors. Maybe even add some sequins or glitter and make it extra fancy or glittery.

Next, simply cut out the pieces and put the snowman together with a bit of glue/paste. Or use double-sided tape if you want to avoid glue/paste altogether. No worries about cutting the snowman out perfectly! Activities like these will help your child or student practice with scissors!

After your snowman is put together, time to put him on display! Hang your Build-a-Snowman printable on the fridge or use it as Christmas decoration. Looking to make a Christmas gift for a loved one? Give them your personalized snowman to spread some Christmas cheer! Put our Build-a-Snowman activity in your back pocket for a fun activity for your kids.

This is a fun kids craft for Christmas or just to celebrate the winter season, because well…snow is awesome!

Go ahead and laminate

I recommend laminating all of our Build activities. Laminating gives this craft a bit more permanence. Kids can put the craft together over and over again without worrying about having to cut and color each time. I don’t use anything fancy, just a simple and easy laminator. This is the laminator I use and recommend, you literally just turn it on, it heats up, and you’re ready to start laminating anything everything!

I’m also a big fan of the self-sealing laminating pouches! They are super easy! You literally just place your printable in a letter size pouch, run it through the laminator and you have a sealed and long-lasting item!

Also, if you do choose to laminate, stick little self-adhesive velcro dots on the laminated pieces so your kids can attach and reattach easily. This eliminates the use of any messy glue!

Below is what will be included in your Build-a-Snowman download (see the bottom of the page for actual download instructions):

Need some craft supplies?

Amazon has always been my go-to for most of my office and craft supplies. If you print a lot of printables and spend  time coloring, gluing and adding some extra jazz to them, our list of supplies can help!

I’ve split the list up into a basic list and a fancier list if you’re going to put a little more pizazz into your printables.
