Homemade Snowman Christmas Card…

alice-finished

Alice has always been a little girl that likes to make things and with Christmas coming there are lots of opportunities for her to get crafting!

I don’t think there is anything better than receiving a homemade Christmas card from a child. I know that Alice’s grandparents would love it and it would become a wonderful keepsake too.

Alice is at the age where she can and wants to do things herself. This is where I have to hold back and remember that the finished product doesn’t have to be perfect, its all about her learning and enjoying it.

To make our snowman Christmas card you will need:

  • Black Card
  • Cotton Wool
  • Pipe cleaners (white, orange and another colour for the scarf)
  • Glue
  • Pom Pom
  • Glitter Glue
  • White Crayon

materials

How to make your snowman Christmas card:

Adult preparation

  1. Fold your black card in half
  2. Draw two circles on the card in white crayon, as an outline of the snowman

Over to the Child

  1. Add glue inside the white circles

2. Stick cotton wool to the glue, making your snowman shape

4. Cut a small piece of the orange pipe cleaner and stick on his head for the nose

5. Take the pipe cleaner you’ve chosen for the scarf and stick around the neck and down the front

    Aww it’s lovely! My favourite thing about this card is that you can tell she’s made it herself but the finished product still looks really good. I’m sure everyone will be really grateful to receive these.

    Fantastic. I love it. I’m determined to do some Christmas crafts with my 3 year old this year. Once there is glitter and glue involved she should be interested 🙂 #kcacols

    These are fab such a good idea for a rainy day. When we do sticking my daughter enjoy it but my son just likes to eat it. So cotton wall and glue oh goodness you can but imagine. Perhaps we will do it during nap time lol. #KCACOLS

    Home made snowman cards are the best. My favourite of all is one my son did without help as it is wonky and beautiful and so totally perfect. #KCACOLS
