My 4yo daughter is a fan of Frozen. She loves pretending to be Anna and keeps asking everyone on the house, Anna’s favorite: Do you want to build a snowman?
So with Christmas not that far away, and to keep her busy during a rainy afternoon we thought about what could make Christmas crafts for kids and went for snowman crafts of course!
We enjoyed making toilet paper roll crafts previously and decided to use that as a base again.
So here are three very easy toilet paper roll Snowman crafts that you can make with your kids at home.
In case you are wondering what else you could do with toilet paper rolls, check out these posts:
1 | Olaf – Christmas crafts for kids
My daughter being a fan of Frozen, we had to make an Olaf for her.
It is an easy Christmas craft to make, but I suggest you get an adult to help with the nose bit.
For Olaf, you will need:
Step 1: First of, you will need to either paint your TP roll in white or glue some white paper on top of it. We chose the white paper option and started by cutting a piece of paper of the same height as the toilet paper roll and then we used the glue to stick it.
Step 2: Then we glued the eyes at the top of the TP roll leaving enough space for the eyebrows.
Step 3: I then took the orange pompom and cut it with the scissors until I made a nose shape. We then fixed the nose under the eyes. If you do not have an orange pompon, you can use an orange piece of paper instead and make it the shape of a carrot.
Step 4: With the black pen, we draw the eyebrows, the mouth and the three black buttons. If you have buttons, you can glue them instead.
Step 5: For the last step, we made two little holes on both sides of the mouth and inserted the sticks in there. We then used the sellotape to fix the three sticks on top of Olaf’s head.
That’s it for Olaf!!
2 | Snowman with a woolly hat – Christmas crafts for kids
Here is our second Toilet Paper Snowman craft. This is a classic snowman with an orange nose, buttons and a scarf.
For this swnoman, you will need:
Step 1: Similarly to Olaf, you will need to obtain a white toilet paper roll. You can choose to paint it or to cover it with white paper.
Step 2: We glued the eyes a bit higher than the ones for Olaf to leave enough room for the scarfs and the buttons.
Step 3: After the nose, we fixed the scarf. We had to look into the kids’ toys and find something that could fit. If you don’t find anything, you can use a coloured piece of paper.
Step 4: We then fixed two buttons under the scarf. We had these in our craft material stock but if you have real buttons that would work just fine!!
Step 5: Once our snowman fully dressed, we draw a little mouth with a black pen.
Step 6: And finally, put his hat on.
Well done for your first snowman!
3 | Snowman with earmuffs – Christmas crafts for kids
This is a classic snowman with earmuffs . The earmuffs might be a bit tricky for the kids to make as you won’t be able to use a glue stick to fix the pipe cleaner.
For this snowman, you will need:
Step 1: Similarly to the previous snowman, you will need to obtain a white toilet paper roll. You can choose to paint it or to cover it with white paper. You then fix the eyes, the nose (made out of the orange piece of paper), draw the mouth, stick the buttons and put the scarf on.
Step 2: Once the base done, we took two pompons that we fixed to a pipe cleaner. I had to do this step as we couldn’t use our regular glue and had to use a stronger one.
Step 3: Once the earmuffs done, we glued them to the TP roll.
I hope you enjoyed these Snowman crafts for kids. Let me know what you are making for Christmas or to keep the kids busy during these rainy days.
