Ways To Use This Craft

This popsicle stick snowman craft is super fun to make, but don’t let it stop there!

As we mentioned above, you can use some string to make this snowman into an ornament. These make a sweet and thoughtful Christmas gift to give Mom and Dad or grandparents! Just wrap them up in a little tissue paper and they’re ready for gifting!

If you don’t want to use them as an ornament, they’re also great for playing with! Let your child use them as little toys or put on a puppet show with them. You can even add another popsicle stick on the bottom half to act as the handle for the puppet!

You can also make playtime educational with your young kids by asking them things like:

  • How many buttons does the snowman have?
  • What color is the snowman’s scarf?
  • What shape is the snowman’s nose?
  • Where do you think a snowman lives?

This will get their minds turning and will help them work on critical thinking, sentence formation and more. Plus, they won’t even know they’re learning!

That’s a win-win if you ask us!
