Frozen Snowman Craft

Do you want to build a snowman?

Our family fell in love with recent Disney’s movie Frozen. We have had a week long of snow on the ground here in Richmond, so making a snowman outside doesn’t sound as fun anymore. Making a snowman craft inside where it is warm sounded like the prefect option. 

This snowman craft is made of foam squares that I bought off of Amazon (because I seriously buy everything off there). 


These are the googly eyes I bought from Amazon:

I used some colored buttons and some brown pipe cleaners to finish our snowman off perfectly.

snowman art foam craft


3 pieces of white foam

1 piece of orange

2 googly eyes

2 brown pipe cleaners

3-4 buttons (Aidalyn wanted 4)


and a glue gun


Remember to always use safety precautions when using a hot glue gun with kids. Make sure they know that the gun is hot and doesn’t need to be touched. 

First cut your 3 white pieces of foam into your body pieces for the snow man. You will want 3 different sizes. 

Hot glue the three pieces together, with the largest on the bottom working up to the smallest. 

Next, hot glue your eyes and buttons in place. 

Next cut our your carrot shaped nose and hot glue in place. 

To make the arms, cut about 3 inches off the top of both of your pipe cleaners. Wrap one piece about 2 inches down from the top of one of the longer pipe cleaners. This will in effect give you 3 fingers and an arm. Do this with both of your pipe cleaners. 

Then, hot glue the pipe cleaners in place for the arms.

I hope your kids have as much fun building a Frozen Snowman craft as we did.

5 Best Gifts: Craft Kits for Toddlers

Christmas gifts, crafts, toddlers

Christmas is almost here

and everyone is making lists for toys and gifts to get their kids. Here is a list of my pick of Craft Kits that I know would be so much fun for the little toddler in your family. 

These Craft kits are also good for learning and creativity. So instead of a new toy, think about getting your toddler some art supplies or one of these all in one craft kits. I know Aidalyn loves working on crafts on a rainy day or when we are having a slow morning. 

1). Sticky Mosaics:

Craft Mosaics

You can purchase here:


These mosaic sticky crafts are great for matching shapes and colors, plus following simple directions. You end with a pretty colorful piece of art that you can hang on a wall. They are sturdy and really a great activity! Aidalyn loves these so much! 

2) Do a Dot Markers

Do A Dot Markers

Purchase here:  

I’m not sure a toddler’s art supplies can be complete without Do-A-Dot markers. They are so wonderful! Aidalyn loves the Do A Dot Art Markers and I love that she can play with them virtually mess free! We bought a coloring book to go with the markers: Tales of the Mermaid Do-a-Dot Creative Activity Book The colors are so pretty and bold. They also are labeled really well for sight word recognition. 

3) Paper Bag Puppets

Paper Bag Puppets

Purchase here:  

Creating Paper Bag animal puppets is a wonderful activity for language development and following directions. I can just see Aidalyn telling wild, imaginative stories using the paper bag puppets. So much fun to decorate and put them together, then you can play for hours after. 

4) Tissue Art

Tissue Art

Purchase here:

We bought this for Aidalyn and I think her favorite part is putting on the googly eyes. She loved the tissue art so much, I bought just a pack of tissue to play with and contact paper. 

5) Giant Busy Box Giant Busy Box

Purchase here: 

This set is much larger and has 16 activities in one box. Tons of learning opportunities. If you wanted an all in one set, this would be the way to go. It’s on sale right now (November) and seems like a great deal!

I hope the toddler in your life is ready to get creative and start exploring the little artist inside.
