This marshmallow snowman craft is a seasonal way to stay warm and work on fine motor skills!
It’s been a little snowy outside and Henry has yet to actually get out in it and PLAY. He’s been outside, but it’s usually to help Dad shovel the driveway.
And he doesn’t last too long. He’s a smart boy – he knows he’s cold and he just comes inside.
So I thought it was time to make a snowman.
Make a Super Sweet Marshmallow Snowman Craft for Kids
Henry and I made a snowman out of marshmallows!
I found this one over at No Time For Flash Cards again. I tell ya, that blog is AWESOME!
To make your own marshmallow snowman, you’ll need:
- mini marshmallows
- small triangle of orange paper
- crayons and/or markers
- cotton balls (optional)
You’ll need to do a little prep work. I drew the snowman, face, buttons, and arms of the marshmallow snowman onto a piece of construction paper.
I left the nose off and we just used a scrap piece of orange paper and cut a triangle. Henry glued it on all by himself – he LOVES that glue stick!
Fine Motor Practice with Your Marshmallow Snowman Craft
I outlined the snowman in regular glue and Henry went to town adding the marshmallows.
He followed the outline perfectly. I was quite shocked.
He did like to smash the marshmallows to make them stay in their place.
We decided to add some snow to the bottom of the snowman with some cotton balls.
I suggested that we stretch and tear them to make them more “snowy.” Henry loved to tear them up.
It’s now hanging proudly on my fridge. Displaying our art is my favorite part of doing this.
This marshmallow snowman craft was one of the very first crafts I did with my kids. It was just Henry when he was about 2.5 years old.
It definitely brings back all those warm fuzzy memories when I look back at it. And I remember the reason we do activities!
