This festive Snowman can become a decoration at your house, at school or kindergarten, it can be turned into a present or a fun game.
DIY Movable Snowman Skier
To make a Movable Snowman Skier, you will need:
- White paper plate ((large)
- 3 Craft sticks
- One toothpick
- Snowman Skier Template which you can download here for FREE
- Pencils or felt-tip pens
- Acrylic paint: white, blue, black and brown
- Paintbrushes or sponge brushes for painting
- Hot glue gun or just any strong glue
- Glue stick
- Paper scalpel
- Things to decorate according to your wishes (we used paper snowflakes)
Step 1: Draw a dividing line
Draw a line on the paper plate. The line on the plate should look like a hill.
Step 2: Paint the Paper Plate with Acrylics
Paint the Paper Plate with Acrylics.
You can paint the plate together with your child. For example, you paint the lower part, while the child paints the upper part.
Paint the lower part of the plate with white acrylic paint – this will be the snow; meanwhile, the upper part of the plate should be painted blue – this will be the sky.
You can mix the blue acrylic paint with a little bit of black paint – this will make a deep dark blue color, perfect for a winter’s evening sky!
Set the plate aside and allow the paint to dry completely.
Step 3: Paint You Craft Sticks and Toothpick
While the plate is drying, paint the Craft Sticks and the Toothpick brown.
When that is done, set everything aside to dry.
Step 4: Decorate Your Paper Plate
After the plate has dried, it’s time to decorate. We glued on some paper snowflakes. You can glue a moon or falling snow.
Step 5: Make a Cut along the Line
It’s now time to make a cut along the line on the paper plate, leaving 1,5–2 cm from both edges. It’s best to use a Paper Scalpel for this.
You have to be very careful while handling paper scalpel – it is very sharp! It’s especially important to keep it away from children.
Step 6: Print out and Color the Free Template
Print out and Color the Free Template for the Movable Snowman Skier.
In my opinion, kids like this part the most. You can color the Snowman together with your child or leave the colouring for them. Coloured pencils or felt-tip pens suit best for colouring.
Step 7: Cut out all the Parts
After everything has been coloured, cut out all the parts.
Step 8: Glue the Parts Together
Well, our Snowman is almost ready!
We’re almost done. Glue all the parts together. A simple glue stick works best.
Step 9: Draw on Mouth, Eyes and Buttons
Take your black felt-tip pen or pencil and draw on the Snowman’s eyes, mouth and buttons.
Step 10: Glue You Snowman on to a stick
Using the hot glue gun or any strong glue, glue your Snowman onto a craft stick. Then glue the skis and the toothpick.
There you have it – your Snowman is ready to ski down the hill!
