Don’t let the fact that it’s too cold outside as an excuse to be bored! Make memories with your child that will melt your heart with today’s adorable melted snowman craft project. When it’s cold outside, bring the fun inside! With this simple kid craft tutorial you don’t have to worry about the cold, the wet mess or the rules. That’s right – the RULES! Just like building a snowman, the aftermath doesn’t have to be perfect either. Let kids explore their creative side while they make their own one-of-a-kind melted mess!
- Darice Felties Fun Pack – (You’ll use the tan, black and white)
- Darice Foamies Marshmallows
- Darice Felties Felt Glue
- Washable Tempera Paint
- Darice Kid’s Craft Scissors
Step 1. To begin the melted snowman craft, have children paint their snowman’s face on the foam marshmallows. Use a paint brush to paint black dots for the eyes/mouth and orange for a carrot nose. Set aside to let that dry completely. Repeat for each snowman.
Step 2. Grab your white felt. Have your child cut out a melted snowman shape. It doesn’t have to be perfect and they can make it big or small. I thought of a sunny-side-up egg shape when I was cutting out our pieces for the melted snowmen. Repeat for each melted snowman craft you are making.
Step 3. Grab your brown and black felt. Go ahead and cut out other embellishments for your snowman. We did a simple black hat, black dots for buttons and brown sticks for the arms. You are more than welcome to do more or less!
Step 4. Now you are ready for the assembling. Grab your glue and start gluing your pieces to the white melted cutout. Feel free to arrange and glue down however you like. At this point in time, you can also add other embellishments (glitter, rhinestones, sequins, etc) to your snowman design. Once done, set it all aside to let it dry completely before displaying proudly!
So what are you waiting for? Don’t let this crafty idea “melt” away! Grab the supplies listed above and make these fun melted snowman crafts today! If you’re looking for more fun projects to tackle with your kids on the next snow day, try these monster craft buttons.
