Our paper plate snowman craft is a great winter craft for kids to do on a cold, snowy afternoon because it uses materials that you most likely already have on hand.  Paper plates, construction paper, and glue make up the majority of the craft with a few extras to make it fun for your children like buttons and felt.  This is a bigger finished project and looks great hanging on the front door as a homemade winter decoration.

What you'll need:

  • 1 large paper plate
  • 1 small paper plate
  • 3 medium buttons
  • 5 small buttons
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Orange, black and green construction paper
  • 2 brown pipe cleaners
  • Red felt
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Tape
How to make your Paper Plate Snowman Craft
  • Tape the small paper plate onto the large paper plate to create the snowman's body.
  • Cut a hat out of black construction paper and glue it to the top of the small circle.
  • Cut a green strip out of construction paper and glue it on the hat.
  • Cut a longer green strip out of construction paper and glue it over the junction of the large and small paper plates as the snowman's scarf.
  • Tape the pipe cleaners on either side of the large paper plate (tape on the back side).
  • Cut two gloves out of red felt and tape/glue them onto the ends of the pipe cleaners.
  • Glue two googly eyes onto the small plate.
  • Cut a triangle out of orange construction paper and glue under the eyes as a nose.
  • Glue the 5 small buttons under the nose in a smile.
