Preschool and Kindergarten Snowman Activities, Crafts, Games, and Printables. The snowman is often considered a symbol of winter. By definition, a snowman is "snow shaped to resemble a human figure," but not every culture creates snowmen in the same way. People in western cultures usually build three-tiered snowmen, but did you know that in most Asian cultures, most snowmen are usually constructed of two tires? Whether you live in a place where the sun shines all winter or where it's snowy and cold, your children will have a ball with our snowman-inspired activities, crafts, worksheets, lessons, and rhymes and songs.
Build a Snowman Play Dough Center
Provide children with a laminated paper with the outline of a snowman. Let children use white play dough, black pebbles, orange pipe cleaners, sticks, and other materials to build their snowman on the mat.
Play dough Snowmen: Use white play dough to make a snowman. Add facial features and other details with colored play dough. Stick pretzels can be used for arms. If desired, you can purchase tiny straw brooms from a craft store to be used as well. Scarves can be made from fabric scraps or felt.
Snowman Stick Puppets
Print or draw snowman shape on white printing paper. Spray glue onto cardboard or recycled cereal box and cut out. Have children decorate their snowman with pieces of felt, small buttons, craft paper, sparkles, etc. Tape a craft stick to the back of the snowman to finish the puppet.
Paper Plate Snowman: Provide each child with three white paper plates. Let children cut out a hat, a scarf, a nose, and buttons from colored construction paper or felt. Glue the hat to one paper plate and have children add facial features. Use a stapler to connect the three plates together vertically. With glue, add the scarf and buttons. Go outside and search for two sticks for its arms. Let dry and attach with staples.
