Snowman crafts for kids are super popular, as is making a real snowman throughout the snowy winter season. Do you know how to build a snowman? A traditional snowman has three segments of snowballs, with the largest ball on the bottom and the smallest at the top, which would be the head. Sticks can be pushed into either side of the body to represent arms. Black pieces of coal or buttons can be used for eyes and to decorate the front of the snowman. A carrot is most commonly used for the nose. Other additions can be added to snowmen including hats, scarves, and clothes. To build a lasting snowman, the snow should be a little melted so that it can be easily packed together. Start with a smaller ball and roll it until it reaches the desired size. You might need help to move the middle and top snowballs to your snowman, which one of the reasons building a snowman is often a group activity. Though "snowman" is the most used term, snow women and snow families are just as popular.

This little guy is adorable. And the supplies can be gotten at the dollar store. So it's easy, cute and very inexpensive . It's a project for the grand kids and myself. I love finding something we can all work on together. Thank you for making this one possible, and for free!
