Build A Snowman Indoors – Children’s Creative Activities


It’s been a little bit too cold to play outside.  My kids see the snow outside and they want to build a snowman. And so we made snowmen today.

With a cup I cut out circles for the snowballs and then I spread cream cheese to make it nice and white.  For snow I dropped spoonful’s of whipping cream on the tray.  I had the kids go through our snack items to find things that they would like to put on their snowman.  Almonds, peaches, jelly beans, crackers, popcorn, carrots…..    Kaylee fingered painted her whipping cream all over tray and decorated it with peaches   She sure does think outside of the box!

Snowballs, castles, bombs………  But no snowman.   I think they had enough of snowman for one day.  They loved having snow brought in from outside.  Great time.

Have fun!!!!!

    • Hi Martin! So I just checked out your blog. I look forward to following. I read some of your posts too. My favorite was the one about grades. I didn’t comment – because I’m thinking how on earth I could write my strong thoughts about this subject. So I probably will get back to it and comment. I agree with your position you take on that Post but I have more to say. Anyway- thanks for putting this post on your blog. I hope readers see that learning can be fun and kids really want to create things their own way. Their so much that developmentally happens when they do. And that would be another post.
      I have a question for you – What does ESL stand for. The S throws me off.

  1. Imagination is a wonderful thing….Auntie Heidi is smiling….

  2. So Heidi you will get a kick out of this. Kaylee spent most of her art time mixing items in her glue before she actually put things on her snowman. She was creating something with that imagination of hers.


    • Thanks Rachel! I wish I was more patient. I am not always patient – but when I do fun things with the kids our days go so much better. I find that I have to be very intentional about it though. I wished that today I would of been more prepared. It was a rough Monday and my patience was challenged. I lost it. Kids do so much better when there are things to look forward to doing.
