Inside this post I'm sharing so many simple snowman crafts for preschoolers! I love making these during the winter time. Hopefully you will too!
What are easy snowman crafts for preschoolers?
In this post I'm sharing 20+ snowman crafts that are simple to set up and use materials you probably already have around the house. It doesn't snow very often where we live in California, so my kids LOVE snowmen, even when they're just building them indoors!
Snowmen are so cute and are pretty easy for preschoolers to make. They are also great to use when you're teaching kids to follow simple instructions. They usually have very simple components (hat, 3 different sized snowballs, eyes, nose, mouth, buttons, arms, and sometimes a scarf).
The snowman crafts in this post use some of the following materials:
- construction paper
- recyclable materials (like toilet paper rolls and cardboard)
- cotton balls/pads
- and more!

What are crafts?
Craft are projects that are focused on using tools and materials to create a specific tangible object or product. On the other hand, art is usually focused on using tools and materials to express an emotion or idea.
Kids can use their creativity and artistic skills as they create a craft project. I love to use both craft and art activities with my preschool classes!
Why are crafts good to do with preschoolers?
There are so many benefits to doing crafts with preschoolers. Here are a few:
- They can help preschoolers build fine motor skills, including scissor skills.
- Crafts can help preschoolers practice following directions.
- They can help preschoolers improve listening skills.
- Crafts can strengthen preschooler hand-eye coordination.
