We had fun making this snowman magnet craft the other day. Is it starting to get all wintery where you live? We had our first snowfall a few weeks ago and the temperature stayed cold enough for the snow to stick around for a while. I love the look of fresh white snow covering the hillsides and dusting the trees. It’s beautiful!
The boys and I created our very own Snowman Magnet Craft to celebrate the beginning of winter…
I try to have crafting materials on hand at all times. My kids know that they can go into the craft room and find all sorts of things that will help them get creative! I try to keep things organized into bins and stocked up. We tend to run out of hot glue sticks most often and I am always having to run to the dollarstore to pick up more!Here are the materials that you will need if you want to make a snowman magnet with your kiddos.
- snap lid
- white acrylic paint
- googlie eyes
- red pipe cleaner
- scrap of black paper
- scrap of orange paper
- white school glue
How to make this snowman magnet craft:
- Paint the snap lid white and allow it to dry.
- Cut snowman features out of construction paper.
- Glue paper, eyes, pipe cleaner and magnet to the snap lid.
Cute right?! And such a fun, easy craft to do with the kids! My guys just love to get creative, it’s especially fun now that the days are colder and shorter. We have more time to craft in the afternoons!I love, love, love watching kids get messy and create all sorts of unique crafts! I think that this DIY Snowman Kit has to be one of my favorites! The boys made these kits our of sculpey clay last year and were selling them at local craft fairs. They made enough money to buy themselves ski lessons!
We loved making this snowman magnet craft and have made many, many more snowman throughout the years. Here are a few more of our favorite snowman crafts. These are perfect to create with the kids, to use as gifts or even sell at your local craft fair!
