6 fun activity ideas for the snowman-obsessed child

If it were up to my son, he’d decorate me with a corn-cob pipe, button nose and two eyes made out of coal. Probably an old silk hat, too. Before you think I’m dramatic, insane or both, let me explain that my kid has an obsession with Frosty the Snowman that just won’t quit. He sings the songs, watches the movies and obsesses over when we get to build our next roly-poly snowy friend. So in looking to expand beyond just Frosty, I decided we needed a guide that covered every fun snowman activity in existence:

Learn about the history of snowmen

Check out images of vintage snowmen via Time Magazine or take in the tallest snowman ever via Guinness World Records.

Craft a snowman of your own

Try out snowman slam, a fun bowling game, or make this sweet snowman mobile made with a paper plate. If you’re feeling really creative, assemble this adorable snowman garland.  

Printable projects 

Print out these coloring pages of various snowmen, practice scissor skills by cutting and building your own snowman or try out this connect-the-dot printable to encourage pattern and number recognition.

Snowman-themed sweets

Make a snowman pancake complete with bacon scarf. Yum! Assemble this cocoa topper made from marshmallows and pretzel sticks or simply tower your clementines into an orange snowman.

Snow stories for bedtime

What to do when snow melts

Whip up these ‘melted snowmen’ cookies or heat up an adorable homemade snowman pizza. Preserve winter fun by creating a mini waterless snow globe  And for all the parents who are ready for a Frosty the Snowman reprieve, help yourself to a melting snowman martini (yes, really). Don’t fret folks, he’ll really be back again someday!
