Time for another adorable wobbling craft, let’s make a rocking paper plate snowman together.
You will soon see how easy and fun these are to make.
Snowmen are a great project to make either for Christmas or winter theme.
Now if you ask me, building a real snowman out of snow is still the best and most fun activity kids can do when it comes to snowmen, but sometimes the weather just doesn’t permit this. Be it too warm or too cold, or well if you just want your snowman to last longer than the winter, these are a fun alternative.
Christmas paper plate crafts are a great classroom activity, as they are frugal and can turn into quite an arty session if you don’t stick to just one project, but give the kids paper plates, materials and a Christmas theme to make. I do hope though, you will find some inspiration in the ideas we share!
Christmas time is all about making memories with family or friends, and Christmas crafting with kids is one of the best ways to spend time together.
Well ready to learn how to make these? Let’s get crafting!
How to Make a Rocking Paper Plate Santa
What you need:
- a paper plate (one paper plate will make two snowmen)
- black marker
- orange paper for the nose

- colored paper for the scarf
Any other decorating materials are naturally more than welcome, some silver or blue glitter glue might give nice little snow sparkle effect.

Apply glue on one end, and glue together into a cone shape.
I usually use a clothespin for this task, and continue crafting.
