Here is a fun activity that can also encourage your kids to spend more time reading: snowman bookmarks! These are so easy to put together, and a ton of fun for kids to create their own snowmen characters. Our downloads below include the snowman bodies and all the little accessories to dress them up. Simply cut the templates onto cardstock and you can start making these cuties!
There is a PDF file for anyone cutting by hand, and an SVG file for anyone using a cutting machine. We recommend cutting everything onto cardstock, anything thinner will be too flimsy (unless you decide to laminate it). The accessories include the adorable hats, scarves and other details that you can add as you go. We used hot glue to assemble all the pieces, but a glue stick is a great, safe option for younger kids. Another possibility for decorating these snowman bookmarks is to use a regular pencil eraser. Just like our eraser stamp Christmas cards, press the eraser onto an ink pad and you will get perfect circles for the eyes and buttons. To finish them off, use a black pen to draw a smirking grin!
Once you are finished crafting your snowman bookmarks with your kids, you can have them write their names on the bottom to personalize them. For longer lasting bookmarks, we recommend laminating them. You can go to your local print shop or office supply store, or you can invest in your own laminator! We added a link in Shop this Project for the laminator that we use, which can also double as a foiling machine for art prints like this Christmas wall art.
