This popsicle stick snowman or lolly stick craft is a perfect school holiday or weekend activity for the kids. It can be turned into a cute magnet to hang on the fridge or an ornament for the tree.
We are all searching for things to do with the kids this winter and this couldn’t be easier. Kids can do this independently and make them as gifts for friends too. All you need is a few supplies including a few jumbo craft sticks, the rest you probably have at home, making this a budget craft activity too!
Red & Green Glitter Glue, Hot Glue Gun & Glue (again I got mine from Amazon and have used it so much it was one of my best lockdown buys!)
Evenly line up 7 regular size popsicle sticks
Using hot glue gun, run a line of hot glue the entire length of a small popsicle stick & press it horizontally onto one end of the 7 sticks – repeat this step on the other end as well
Flip the newly made board over and run an angled line of hot glue near the top of the board and apply a regular size stick at an angle to form the brim of the hat.
Paint the face section of the snowman with a solid coat of white paint
Paint the hat section with a solid coat of black paint
Use hot glue to attach the eyes just below the brim of the hat
Using the orange felt, cut out a triangle shaped nose and glue it below the eyes
With the black marker, draw on the snowman’s mouth
To decorate the hat, use the red and green glitter glue to make a dot design on the brim
Your snowman is now complete!
Kids will love this and once they have made their popsicle stick snowman they can mix it up by making Sanat too. Just paint a red hat instead! From a snowman to a Santa – these will be a big hit for Christmas! And the best part is you can hang them on the Christmas tree when you are done. Or you can give them as a Christmas gift or add them on top of presents as decoration. For more Christmas crafts check out my Rag Wreath which cost under £5 to make! or Christmas Crafts for Children
