Quick Tip

If you don’t have any white paper bags on hand, we have a two ideas for you.

One, you can simply use a brown paper bag the way it is and glue the pieces on.

Two, you can cut out white paper in the size of the flap and bottom pieces and glue them on. This will allow you to still have the white background without using a white paper bag.

Either way, we’re sure they’ll turn out great!

Frosty The Snowman Movie Night Idea

One fun way to use this paper bag snowman craft is to get the whole family together to have a family movie night!

Preparing This Craft For Young Kids

If you’re planning on doing this craft with young children, we have a few tips to making it go smoothly.

First, have all the pieces cut out and ready to go. Toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarten children will have a blast making this snowman puppet but many will not have the scissor skills necessary to cut out all the pieces.

By doing this ahead of time, you’ll be ready to jump right in when it’s time to craft.

We also recommend young kids use glue sticks instead of liquid glue. This cuts down on the mess big time and keeps hands a little less sticky!
