We’re back with another Simple Classic: the Cotton Ball Snowman!

Remember these from back in the day?Winter Craft for Kids

I love that the concept is so simple and so representative of crafty winter fun.


  • Construction paper
  • Cotton balls
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors

How To

Step 1

Cut out your snowman.  I folded a piece of white construction paper lengthwise and cut three large arcs in different sizes.  When you unfold the paper, you’ll have nice fat snowman.

Step 2

Coat your snowman’s body with glue.  Tip: a glue stick works much better than liquid school glue.

Step 3

Stick on the cotton balls.

Step 4

Add eyes, nose, scarf, mouth, hat, and any other decorative accessories for Frosty.  I simply freehand cut some colored construction paper and let the kids glue them on.
