INSIDE: This Easy Fork Painted Melted Snowman Craft is the perfect craft for the winter season! And super easy to make. It’s a great boredom buster for toddlers and preschoolers.
Fork Painted Melted Snowman Craft
Grab a sheet of blue construction paper, plastic fork and a bowl. Fill the bowl with some white washable kids paint.
Dip the fork into the paint and start to create a roundish shape similar to the shape a pile of melted snow would make. Let them have fun. It doesn’t matter if they make a pile stamping with the fork or just enjoy stamping the fork all over the page. Remember there is no one way to make a melted snowman!
Add googley eyes anywhere! So great for toddlers.
Add the arms and carrot nose, made from brown and orange construction paper respectively (cut these out before hand). These again can go anywhere!
Finally, cut out a few black circles from construction paper or glue black buttons if you have them. To make the circles I used a circle punch.
Glue the circles around the melted snowman body.
This activity is more of a parent activity to make for your kids. Advent calendars are great for all ages! My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7.5 year old.

Make quiet time their favourite time!
Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.
My Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!
