This month, my Kids Craft Stars friends and I are back with another fun craft challenge. Since it’s the middle of winter now, we couldn’t resist trying out some cute snowman crafts. We have a huge collection of stones that we have been collecting on each trip to the beach, so I decided to put them to good use and let the kids make snowmen with them for this simple mix n match stone snowmen activity.

Join us on Instagram and share your snowman themed crafts and activities with us using the #KidsCraftStars hashtag, and we’ll choose a few of our favourites to share

Mix n match stone snowmen winter craft for kids to make and play with


You’ll only need 3 things to make these snowmen. They are super simple!

  • Stones (we collected loads at the beach to keep for craft projects like these)
  • White Paint
  • Sharpies (my kids favourites are our gold silver and bronze pack)

To make the snowmen, first you’ll need to paint your stones white. They’ll need time to dry, so you can do this part one day and leave the decorating to the next day when the paint will be totally dry.

Take two or three stones per snowman – one stone for the head, and one or two for the body. Then just draw features onto each stone with your sharpies, it can be as simple or as detailed as your kids like so this idea will work for any age of child.

We added hats, scarves, buttons for the body and little twig arms, along with of course a carrot for the nose.

Once you’re done, you can mix and match the bodies with each snowman, or stack them up to build your snowman upwards too
