Activity: Snowman Fridge

Snowman Fridge Activity

A very large snowman for your kitchen! This is so easy to do!

I made ours an interactive snowman.

I cut out the following pieces from craft foam sheets.

  • 2 large black circles [eyes]
  • 3 medium black circles [buttons]
  • 5 small black circles [mouth]
  • 1 orange triangle [nose]

If you don’t have the craft foam sheets, construction or scrapbook paper would work for this too! That’s what I saw done at “Crafting” my Talents.

My foam is self-adhesive. Potentially, I could have just stuck them onto the fridge like that and would have been even easier.

Instead, I cut out a little circle in the middle of the sticky paper and stuck on a craft magnet [Thanks for them!]. It would be even easier with self-adhesive craft magnets!


A snowman needs a scarf too, right?

Take some of that leftover wrapping paper, the scraps work well, or just a 3 inch strip off the end of a roll does the trick too.

Simply cut the wrapping paper in long strips to form the scarf. I taped the scarf in place.

Ta-da, you’ve made a snowman!

Now let the kids have fun making silly faces with the pieces!

Counting pieces adds a little learning to the activity!

Henry counted the number of mouth pieces and buttons on the snowman!

Bonus: It made me clean off my fridge! I think this will have to be done every year just for that sole reason!

    Really cute! From the thumbnail I thought it was a paper bag puppet because of the rectangular shape. The fridge snowman is a great idea!

    This is cute! I took the cheater's way out and bought magnetic fridge sets at Dollar Tree. They loved mixing up Santa's and the Snowman's pieces, and the reindeer turned into a dog!
