However. It just snowed enough to stick to the grass and look pretty on the trees.
There isn’t enough snow to build snowmen. On the one hand that is nice. Roads aren’t snow packed. Sidewalks aren’t slick.
But! What if your grandkids want to build a snowman?
What’s a grandma to do with the snow-challenged grandkids?
Why make spiral paper snowmen with the grandkids, that’s what! Nobody’s feet will be frozen. No pile of soggy snow clothes to deal with.
You can be in your cozy, warm, dry home while you’re having snowman fun.
These snowmen are super easy to make. Super inexpensive. And the grandkids love them!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- white cardstock paper
- paper hole punch
- my spiral snowman body printable
- my spiral snowman faces printable
First, print out the snowman body. Then, cut it out. Continue cutting on the lines.
Punch a hole at the innermost end of the spiral. Cut a length of string. Thread it through the hole and tie it. (Emma needs help tying the knot in the string.)
Bend the innermost end of the spiral. This is so that the snowman’s face will stand out and not be flat. Glue on the face.
Ta da! You’re done! Wasn’t that fun? See how easy it was to make!
Everyone is proud of their snowmen.
No frostbitten nose. No cold hands. Lots of fun instead!
You can make a whole herd of these fellas in no time flat!
