an activity for preschoolers:
This is a great project for our K – 3 classroom hallways. Each grade level does a different craft for each season. Our class made snowmen that hang from the ceiling and is two-sided.

before you begin:
Gather the following: clear contact paper, construction paper in a variety of colors and scissors. Prior to doing this craft with your class, you will need to cut out two 6-inch circles from clear contact paper.

activity goals:
A double-sided activity that can be scaled for a variety of grade levels. Identify and learn about shapes while creating this interesting snowperson.

For younger children, you may choose to cut the shapes for facial features in advance. Younger children may need help cutting and using the contact paper.

let's get started

step 1
Cut shapes from construction paper to create each snowpal’s features. Cut round black circles from construction paper for the eyes and mouth, a black hat shape, orange triangles for the nose and multicolored squares for the scarf. The last scarf square should be double the size with one end fringed.
step 2
Peel the protective paper from the contact paper.
step 3
Arrange pieces cut out for the eyes, nose, mouth and scarf onto the sticky side of the contact paper.
step 4
Lay the hat at the top of the contact paper.
step 5
Peel the protective paper from another sheet of contact paper and place it on top of the first piece.
step 6
Hang your smiling snowpals in your classroom for the children to admire.
