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.
