Create a snowman using craft sticks and paint and use it for your holiday or wintertime decorating!

  • Grades: PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5

What You Need

  • Craft paint in black and white
  • Paintbrush
  • Glue
  • Black marker
  • Googly eyes
  • 8-inch strip of ribbon
  • 8 craft sticks
  • 1 pom pom (any color)

What You Do

  1. Glue 7 craft sticks side-by-side, using a strong-hold glue. Lay them on a flat surface and allow the glue to dry.
  2. Glue the last craft stick horizontally across the other 7 sticks, about 1-inch up from the end of the sticks. The horizontal craft stick will form the brim on the snowman's hat.
  3. Once the glue has dried, paint the brim of the hat and above with black paint (or whatever color you like).
  4. Paint the rest of the sticks white.
  5. Allow the paint to dry.
  6. Glue 2 googly eyes just below the brim of the hat.
  7. Glue the pompom below the eyes, to form the nose.
  8. Use black market to draw a mouth.
  9. Using a strong-hold glue, attach the ribbon to the back of the snowman. Once dry, you can hang up your snowman decoration!
