Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean our kids are finished with their Christmas spirit yet! In fact, they usually make us listen to Christmas music and help them make holiday themed crafts all the way through until the New Year, if not longer. To them, winter and snow just means Christmas. That’s why we’ve been stocking away holiday themed crafts for them to make any time they please! Lately, they’ve been real obsessed with making snowmen. Of course, we live where it’s snowy and cold, so they’ve already made plenty of actual snowmen outside in our yard, but some days are just too chilly and sometimes they’d rather just craft. That’s why we made sure to find all kinds of awesome snowman themed DIY projects that they could make even on days that they’d rather spend inside.
Just in case your kids love both crafting and snowmen just as much as ours do, if not more, here are 15 awesome snowman themed crafts that will keep them nice and busy while they’re off school for the holidays!
