Making Snowman paper dolls is a simple and easy paper cutting craft for kids. Mr Z made some of these at school and came home to demonstrate to us how to make more of them.

These snowmen can be made into a garland to decorate for Winter, or used to play with and this craft can be done by children of around 5-6 without any adult help or guidance required. Toddlers and preschoolers could make these too with a little guidance.

To make the snowmen paper dolls you will need:

  • Paper (at least 2 sheets of A4)
  • Cellotape
  • Scissors
  • Felt tips or crayons to decorate
  • Sequins, pom poms and other decorating materials (optional)

How to make this paper cutting snowmen craft

Take your two pieces of A4 paper and neatly cellotape them together at the back. You want them to touch closely but not overlap.
