Do you live where you can build a snowman each winter? What if there’s no snow in sight? No worries, we have the perfect solution that brings all the snowman building fun indoors where it’s nice and warm.
Our ripped paper snowman craft is a great alternative to the snowless days! Kids can bring a snowman to life by tearing and pasting paper pieces onto our snowman template.
This activity can help kids develop several skills. It uses the small muscles in their hands and fingers as they tear the paper, which promotes fine motor skill development. It also uses both hands in a coordinated way, so their hand movements promote bilateral coordination and dexterity.
Among other skills, it also works on spatial awareness as kids place the ripped paper in specific shapes like our snowman template.
