A Footprint Snowman Craft Decoration is a super fun and easy craft for your child to make! It’s a little messy but my kids love those types of crafts the best. This craft only requires a few supplies and they’re more than likely already in your crafts box. I love that the Snowman Footprint craft doubles as a keepsake as well as a decoration. Since your child uses his or her footprint, it’s fun to go back and look at a few years down the road to see how much they’ve grown (well, how much their feet have grown!) If you have ever done handprint or footprint crafts, you know what I am talking about! It’s a perfect craft to give to grandparents or relatives too!
Snowman Footprint Tutorial
Footprint Snowman Decoration Supplies Needed:
- Construction Paper (Blue, Brown and Black)
- White Paint
- Markers (Orange and Black)
- Glue Stick
Directions For How To Make Your Footprint Snowman Decoration:
Start by grabbing your blue construction paper, your white paint and…your child’s foot! Have them stand over the construction paper and paint the bottom of his/her foot. Carefully place their foot on the paper and gently press down making sure each toe touched the paper.
While you let the snowman dry, grab the black paper and brown paper. Draw a hat on the black paper and arms on the brown paper. If your child can use scissors, let the cut out the hat and arms or cut them out for them if needed (they will have the opportunity to glue in a bit!). Once your snowman body is dry, take your scissors and cut out the snowman. We left a little edge around ours.
Next, take your markers and let your child draw the snowman’s eyes, carrot nose, mouth and buttons. Once the drawings are done, it’s time to finish the craft by gluing the arms and hat on.
Now your snowman footprint craft is all done! If you would like to use it as a snowman footprint ornament, you can just add a ribbon loop on the back of the hat.
Has your child ever made handprint crafts or footprint crafts before? I love when my kiddos make these type of crafts. They are so special! Give this craft a try the next time your child wants to craft with paint!
