Winter Crafts: How To Make A Cotton Ball Snowman

Winter is coming! It’s a time of year that provides lots of fun opportunities for arts and crafts. Kids love snowmen (and so do we).

This idea from A Little Pinch Of Perfect is easy and safe, but really effective. The snowmen look fantastic, and children can choose to decorate them however they like.

You Will Need:

  • Craft glue (plus a shallow container to put it in)
  • Cotton balls
  • Craft paper
  • Sticks for arms
  • Googly eyes
  • Stickers and coloured paper for decorating


  1. Draw the outline of a snowman on the craft paper (see picture below)
  2. Give your child a shallow container with some glue. Let them dip the cotton balls in it and stick them on the snowman.
  3. Let your child glue on their decorations. Add the googly eyes, stick arms and any other embellishments they would like to add.
