We love celebrating the holidays by creating fun projects with our kids like these alphabet block snowmen. The Christmas season is my absolute favorite time of year!
They make the perfect whimsical ornament or decoration. But good luck having these little guys stay in one place, they are just too fun to play with! Let me show you how to create your own alphabet block snowman.
These snowmen are quick, fun and easy to make. I love crafts that require very few special materials or supplies because then you can make them at any time. My kids know that they can go into the craft room and find all sorts of things that will help them get creative! Keeping things organized into bins and stocked up is always helpful because then they can easily find the supplies that they may need. We tend to run out of hot glue sticks most often and I am always having to make a trip to the dollarstore to pick up more!

First, you will need to gather a few alphabet blocks. Maybe you have some lying around the house? I found these ones at a local thrift store but you could also look for them at the toy store. Or simply cut 2″x2″ blocks from wood purchased at the hardware store.
Paint the blocks white using acrylic paint. You need at least three blocks for each snowman.
Using acrylic paint add snowman features to one block and three black buttons to another. Seal the blocks with a varathane sealer or Mod Podge to add durability.
Now have fun stacking and moving blocks and the snowman about. Add a scarf with a bit of scrap fabric, add a little top hat or toque, add stick arms with a bit of hot glue. You can truly customize each snowman however you want. The possibilities are endless! I mean, how adorable is this alphabet block snowman?! We made these Alphabet Block Snowman Ornaments recently too!
