Paper Plate Snowman
All you need to whip up with super cute winter craft for preschoolers are a few simple materials you probably already have on hand:
- tissue paper – we used white and blue
- construction paper – various colors to make hats, ear muffs, arms, etc.
- black sharpie
- contact paper
- paper plates (optional)
Snowman Craft Ideas
Start by cutting up the white and blue (or any color you like) tissue paper into squares.
Paper Plate snowman craft
Open contact paper so sticky side is up. Press tissue paper all over. Cover with additional contact sheet with sticky side down towards tissue paper. You will need 2 sheets to make a snowman.
HINT: We made one white and the other a mixture of blue and white.
Use a bowl or freehand to trace a large circle with a sharpie marker. Now cut out your circle.
Winter Craft for Preschoolers
Repeat with another sheet of contact paper to make a smaller circle. Now you have a two ball snowman.
Construction paper snowman
Now you can either cut out the center of a paper plate or use a piece of whtie paper to make the white border.

Then use your sharpie (carefully, remember sharpies are permanent markers) to add eyes, mouth, and buttons.

Now cut out any accessories you’d like to use to make your snowman such as earmuffs, mittens, scarves, top hats, twig arms, triangular noses, etc.
