How to build a snowman book
I love teaching this book to my students. They are so engaged and excited about it! I have found that this book is great for teaching sequencing, cause and effect and even social skills. I read this book with my class every year at least twice. It never gets old!
My favorite part of this book is how it teaches children how to build a snowman. Each page shows one step in the process of creating a snowman. It starts with the head, then nose and mouth, followed by arms and lastly the body. The illustrations are simple enough for young readers to follow along with the story and make each step seem like fun!
This book can be used as an introduction into writing stories or just for fun! Writing is an important literacy skill because it makes kids feel proud of their work when they can read something that they created themselves! While reading this story together as a class we take turns reading each page aloud until we get to the end of the story. Then we draw our own pictures on paper in our own handwriting so that everyone has their own version of how to
This is a fun activity for kids to do on a snow day. It’s also a great activity to do with your child if you’re planning on using it as a gift for someone else.

Building a snowman is a fun activity for kids to do. You can build the snowman with your child or even by yourself. The best part about building a snowman is that you don’t need any special equipment to help you do it! You can use things around the house or in nature to create this craft.
Step 1: Gather Materials
cardboard (to make the body)
Paper plate (to make the head)
Cotton balls (to make the eyes)
Pipe cleaners (to make arms and legs)
Paint or markers (if desired)
This is a fun book for kids to read. It includes step by step instructions on how to build a snowman. It also includes cut out pictures of the steps and instructions. The size of the book is 8 x 10 inches, so it’s easy for kids to read.
This book also has a spot for children to write their name and date on each page, so they can see how much they have improved over time!
You can print these pages directly from your home computer, or you can take them to any printing company and get them printed for you.
The pages are designed in a way that makes it easy for younger children (and even adults!) to follow along with the step by step instructions and build their very own snowman!
Step 1: Build the body. The first step is to build the body of your snowman. You can do this by rolling a ball of snow and then smoothing out the edges with your hands until it looks like a ball. If you don’t want to roll it by hand, you can also use a rope to make the shape instead.
Step 2: Add arms and legs. Once you have built your snowman’s body, you need to add arms and legs so that he can stand up on his own! To do this, simply push two sticks into the top of your snowman’s head and then tie them together at the top with some twine or string so that they form an “X” shape. Then place another stick underneath each arm and tie them together at their tops as well. Your snowman should now have 4 sticks sticking out of his head, forming an X shape! Now all you need to do is add his legs by placing two more sticks on either side of his body and tying them together at the bottom with twine or string as well!
Gather supplies. You will need:
-Popsicle sticks (or other sturdy sticks)
-Scissors or craft knife
-Glue stick or white glue
-Markers and crayons for decorating your snowman. I used Sharpie markers and Crayola washable markers. You can also use stickers, glitter, feathers, pom poms, etc. If you are going to use paint, be sure to put newspaper down where you are working so you don’t get paint on the floor (or carpet if you have pets).
A snowman is a large snow sculpture built by humans, usually as a winter decoration. The combination of the words snow and man is a near-universal appellation for the male figure made from snow; and conversely, when used to refer to the female figure, it is generally called an “ice lady” or “snowwoman”. Snowmen are traditionally created in an anthropomorphic form, but may also be found in other shapes, such as those resembling an animal.
Snowmen are typically built by children using large amounts of compacted snow. Often these will have a face that can be carved out using coal or charcoal and then sprayed with water until it freezes; thus forming an ice mask.
The earliest known mention of a snowman comes from the diary of Samuel Pepys where he writes on January 13th 1661 ‘I walked into London today with my wife to see plays.’ In this entry he talks about going to see a play at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane called ‘The Man’s Bewitched’. One scene in this show involved three men building a giant snowman which was apparently so realistic that it scared Pepys’ wife so much that she screamed out loud!
