Snowman Popsicle Stick Craft Project

on January 9, 2014

I was recently inspired by many of the snow day craft projects that I came across while putting together our Snow Day Pinterest page.  There are a lot of really creative, really simple ideas out there and I was ready to try one.  Especially since, looking around at our art supplies, I had many of the necessary ingredients for something I knew my daughters would love.  Off I went, assembling the elements for our very own popsicle stick snowman.

First, I set out a brown paper grocery bag for each of my daughters to work on.  Then, I set out:

(6) large popsicle sticks (any size works, but I used tongue depressors)

(2) googly eyes

(1) yellow triangle nose

(2) craft puffs (or any decoration for the hat, like buttons, stars, beads)

(2) glitter glue sticks to draw a mouth and decorate

(1) paper plate, white paint and a sponge paint brush and glue stick

I had the girls start by painting (5) of the popsicle sticks white

Then we set them aside and they painted the last popsicle stick the color of the choice (this is the color of the hat)

We let those dry for a few minutes (and watched 2 music videos on YouTube from the move Frozen) and then I turned over the 5 white sticks and taped them together with masking tape.  In hind site, I should have done this first, but it turned out just fine.

I then had the girls glue on their blue and purple sticks horizontally about 1/3 from the top to designate where the hat would lie.  They painted the area above the rim to complete the hat.

Then they added the eyes, nose and hat decorations.

Finally, they used the glitter glue to create a mouth.

Once they were complete, we aside to dry.  In my daughter Rachel’s case, she may never get to hold her snowman because she unleashed 1/2 of the glitter glue tube to create it’s mouth.  “Look, Mommy!  He’s making a surprised face!”

Never a dull moment.  At least she’s creative!
