Printable Snowman Crafts and Activities

Today my son woke up to find a very light dusting of snow coating the tops of cars. The snow didn't have much staying power as there was none left on the ground, but to here my son's reaction you would have thought we were in the middle of a blizzard. He jumped up and down, begging to go outside to make a snowman. Of course, there wasn't enough snow for that and I had to break the unfortunate news to him.
So I went on the search for snowman crafts and activities for him to do instead of making a real snowman. I found a few things that I liked and I want to share them with you.

We tried out this printable snowman maze from Print Activities and colored and cut this printable snowman from Danielle's Place. I used this snowman coloring page as the cover of a snowman notebook. I punched a hole in the top and tied all the pages together. I put a different winter related word on each page for him to trace and rewrite. We made the printable snowman craft by Original Kids Crafts and hung it on the door.

This one is pink with a snowman. She has a whole collection. I think they would make and interesting nontraditional Christmas Village. If you use them make sure to drop her a line and thank her for the templates.

Life in the Craft Lane with Mandy had a adorable snowman recipe card that I really liked. The download link is broken but clicking on picture will give you a usable image to print. PaperTree (from CrabTree Media) has a cute printable snowman paper toy ornament that I'm going to make later too.
Hope you enjoyed this printable snowman link list. :)

I love snowman crafts! And I loved your article on saving money when printing.

Thank you for offering me the name of the white beads "opal beads" that were on my site. I appreciate it very much.

Have a great day!
