Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Are you singing the song in your head now?

 

Now that we are all in the spirit… 😉

Every year, we dress our refrigerator up as a snowman. It’s a fun way to make the kitchen a little more festive. It’s simple, easy, quick, and completely customizable!

What you need:

  • Construction Paper or Card Stock
  • Tape
  • Scissors

All you do is cut out eyes, a nose, and little circles for a mouth – in any color you choose! We have a mustache for our snowman because the first year we did this, my son wanted the snowman to have a mustache. We’ve used it every year since. You can make a mustache for your snowman and/or a beard. Get wild and crazy!

TIP: I have saved the eyes, nose, mouth, and mustache that we made years ago and we re-use them every year.

Then simply tape your features to the fridge and create your snowman!

My son has taken over this year, and decided to cut out some buttons for the snowman.

In previous years, we created a scarf out of clear blue wrap and ribbon. It was cute, but it didn’t stay on the fridge very well. Also, we have tried arms in the past. They get in the way and people run into them. (By people I mean me. haha!)

Finally, it’s fun to add a hat! We switch it up each year. One year, our snowman was a firefighter, one year he had a Santa hat, one year he had a top hat, one year he had no hat… This year our snowman has a special hat.

And voila! You have your very own snowman!

This is such a fun project to do with the kids. My son loves it and now that he’s old enough, he is in charge of this craft. I help with the tape; I play Christmas music, and I dance and sing around the kitchen while he puts the snowman together.

We have fun.
