Make a Snowman with a DIY Snowman Kit

diy snowman kit.

It snowed here big-time two days ago, and we had so much fun playing outside!

I had just bought L a small shovel at the mall as a treat after his dentist appointment (we made it through another difficult one) because I know how much he loves helping his Daddy shovel the driveway.

And I got to make a snowman for the first time in about 25 years!

Last year I bought a cute snowman kit at a craft fair.

The kids selling them had made many of these snowman kits themselves and were selling them for $5 each.

I thought this was such a cute and practical idea, and we finally got to use it!

The DIY snowman kit included:

  • a felt hat
  • a felt scarf
  • some buttons in a bag
  • two pieces of coal in a bag
  • a pipe

I added a fresh carrot for the snowman nose.

Making snowman kits for friends and family for the winter or for Christmas would be a fun activity with kids. What an easy and welcome gift they would make!

I think I could get all the supplies, including cellophane bags and little plastic bags, for nearly nothing at the dollar store.

Who wouldn’t like a kit to make a really cool snowman? I couldn’t wait to use ours.

Meet our Mr. Snowman:

L and Don helped me build him.

The snow was sticky, but we couldn’t roll large balls, that’s why Mr. Snowman is long and lean.

Does Mr. Snowman look adorable in front of our house?

Have fun making your own DIY snowman kit!

I hope you get to make your own snowman this year.

I love the snowman kit and I think I might make some kits up myself for gifts. Too bad I didn’t know about it sooner, it would of made a great Christmas gift.
I also helped my grandkids build a snowman. I hadn’t built one for about 20 years.

Great connecting on twitter! Your snowman looks snazzy. We are going to run out and make a few more snowmen today. The snow is perfect!

Great snowman. We even got some snow here in Texas. Such an unusual winter.
