Here's a fluffy snowman to make a homemade Christmas card or festive window decoration.

Snowman Christmas card


Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy,

Materials
  • 2 cotton wool pads
  • Small dot stickers (or cut and stick from paper)
  • Scraps of colourful paper including orange
  • Scrap of cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Plain coloured card (to make Christmas card) or piece of clear sticky book covering (to make window decoration)

  • Method
  • Trim one of the cotton wool pads into a smaller circle to make the snowman's head.



  • Stick on small black stickers for eyes and buttons. You could also cut these out of paper and glue on.



  • Cut out a hat, scarf and carrot nose shape from scraps of colourful paper.

  • Hat, scarf and nose shapes


  • Glue the cotton wool pads into a piece of card, with the smaller circle on top for the head.
  • Stick on the hat, nose and scarf with glue. If you're using a glue stick, make sure you apply the glue onto the paper components rather than directly onto the cotton wool pad.



  • Trim round cardboard to get your finished snowman.

  • To make a Christmas card, stick the snowman onto a blank card.

    To make a window decoration, stick a piece of sticky back book covering onto the snowman (sticky side onto the front of the snowman). Trim round the edge, leaving a sticky border of about a centimetre. The snowman will then stick to the window by pressing the sticky border to the glass.
