Busy Hands: Snowman Texture Art

Winter is upon us, and Christmas is around the corner (can I say that?), so I couldn't resist preparing a snowman art project for Little Dude. The little guy hasn't seen real snow yet, but does understand what a snowman is. Besides, they are so cute!

For this simple Snowman Texture Art project, I tried to give him a variety of materials to create different textures. It gives the snowman a 3D-like effect and really makes the finished artwork pop out.

Snowman Texture Art for kids

Here are the materials we used for creating this snowman art:

- Cotton wool
- Blue, black and orange card stock/paper
- Small buttons
- Red yarn
- Snowflake glitter
- Blue or brown pipe cleaner
- Craft glue

Materials for the Snowman Texture Art project

This is how we made it:

1. Use the blue card as a base and draw three circles for the snowman with a pencil.

2. Apply glue to each circle and stick on the cotton wool.

3. Cut out two circles for the snowman's eyes with the black card, and a triangle for the nose with the orange card. Paper may not stick on as well on cotton, but you can try thick paper. Stick them on in place.

4. Stick on the buttons. An assortment of buttons looks better.

5. We used blue pipe cleaner for the arms. You can also use yarn for this.

6. We cut out a hat from the black card, and stuck it on.

7. Then, I folded the red yarn a couple of times, and helped Little Dude stick it on as a scarf for the snowman.

8. We had some snowflake glitter, so I let him stick it around the snowman. This was probably the most fun part for Little Dude! I had initially planned on using more cotton to make snow, but this looks pretty nice.

Making this textured snowman art was a fun activity, and can also be used to make pretty greeting cards.
