Frosty The Snowman Activity And Craft
This simple yet fun activity can be enjoyable for children of all ages. Older children will find this activity stimulating while younger ones may find it a little challenging. If your child is too young to handle scissors confidently, go ahead and assist them with cutting the pieces.
Putting together this paper snowman will likely ignite your child’s curiosity and imagination. Be prepared to answer several questions on snowmen if you’re around!
While helping your child out with this activity, you could explain the concept of building a real snowman and how it’s been around for centuries. This will make your child want to build a real one on their own so you could plan something for them along those lines too.
You could even teach your child to sing the popular song ‘Frosty the Snowman’ to really get them into the holiday spirit.
