Kid Craft: Door Snowman Decoration

After putting up all our Christmas decorations, the kids wanted to keep on decorating.  We took a quick gander around the house and decided that our bedroom doors looked a little bare. So, we got to work.

The directions below will guide your snowman building adventure. This low budget activity gives kids creative freedom to also add a hat, boots, hands, etc. My kids (5 and 4 years old) were happy picking out the scarf colors, tracing, cutting and hanging the pieces.  The older they get, the more creative they become.

OK, let’s start creating.  Here’s a list of supplies you’ll need:

Directions:

  1. CARROT: Draw a carrot on the orange paper, that is almost the full length of the paper using an orange crayon/marker. See image for guidance. Using a kid-safe scissors, have your child cut out the carrot.Kid Craft: Door Snowman Decoration - by Little Spoons and Spice
  2. COAL (eyes/mouth/buttons): Using the circle stencil, have your child trace 12 circles on the black paper using a white crayon. They may need guidance to ensure all 12 circles will fit onto one page.  Using a kid-safe scissors, have your child cut out the coal.Kid Craft: Door Snowman Decoration - by Little Spoons and Spice

  3. Scarf: Cut your two remaining colored pieces of construction paper into 8 equal pieces. To do this, I folded the paper into eighths then cut on the line.

  4. Assembly: Now the fun part, the kids get to build a snowman.  Depending on their age, they may need assistance with the scarf.  When you are attaching the last colored piece for the scarf, cut strips 3/4 of the way up the paper to get the appearance of fringes on a scarf.Kid Craft: Door Snowman Decoration - by Little Spoons and Spice
