Recycled Newspaper Snowman Craft

One of my favorite materials we’ve used lots of this year is newspaper. It’s so versatile for crafting whether you leave it plain like in our newspaper shark craft, or paint it with watercolors and make colorful newspaper owls.

For winter we’ve already had fun making snowy landscape art with newspaper and today we are sharing this simple newspaper snowman craft. There is no painting required at all so it’s a quick craft to set up and put together.

Kids are going to love giving their snowman a unique personality with any embellishments you have on hand.

3. Finish your newspaper snowman craft by decorating him with all of your embellishments. We used black buttons for the face and colored buttons down the body. We cut out a top hat from our black paper, a carrot nose from our orange paper and twig arms with our brown paper. We also made a cute scarf with washi tape.
