Snowman Writing Craftivity

Activity for ages 5 to 8.

Get students excited about writing with this festive winter craftivity! Children will love dreaming up ideas about how to bring a snowman to school and you’ll love that it’s so quick to prep. The snowman writing craftivity makes a fabulous winter hallway display.

Getting Ready

Prep for this craftivity was a breeze! All I had to do was print the snowmen on card stock and then print the rest of the pages on regular paper.

Then I grabbed scissors, glue sticks, and a piece of colored card stock for each of my students and we were ready to get started.

I always like to start young learners with a brain map when we begin writing on a new topic so we worked as a class to answer the prompts in each circle of our brainstorm sheet.

The brain map really got children’s creativity flowing and helped keep them from getting frustrated later.

I like to give more advanced writers an empty brain map so that they can be creative all on their own. Although my students weren’t ready for it yet, I included a copy for you in case it was a good fit for your class.

Once the brain map was filled out, we transferred our ideas on to the practice sentences worksheet.

This is where they got to perfect their sentences and make sure to have proper punctuation!

(I like to work on this portion during small group rotations to help them form their sentences properly.)

Once their practice sentences were complete, students carefully wrote their final draft and, when it was “display ready”, they moved on to the craft!

The craft portion was really simple but made the writing project really pop.

I let my students choose between a cute girl snowman or a boy snowman. Once they made their choice all they had to do was color and cut it out and then carefully glue it to the top of a bright piece of cardstock to add some extra color.

Then we glued the final draft of their writing page underneath the snowman’s hands.

Our snowman craftivity was such a great way to help students think outside the box! The final product turned out great and our frosty family looked so festive hanging in the hall.
