We live in the Deep South. Which means that winter is kind of a one-week deal.
We do get cold weather and the occasional snow flurry, but for the most part, actual snow and ice winter only occurs every once in a while.
The few times we’ve had snow have been newsworthy affairs. The kids will just sit in front of the window and watch in amazement as it falls.
So they’ve never had the chance to make a real snowman in the yard.
But we still wanted to get into the wintery spirit, so we’re sharing a new one of our coffee filter crafts for kids – a coffee filter snowman craft!
This is such a fun and quick winter craft for the kids to do this year!
Read on to see how to make it at home!

Coffee Filter Crafts for Kids: Coffee Filter Snowman Craft
To make this coffee filter snowman craft, you’ll need the following: (Affiliate links are listed below. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
We went with blue construction paper for the background.
The black and orange pieces of construction paper are for making the snowman’s face.
Start by gluing the coffee filter onto the center of the construction paper. We put ours toward the bottom of the center.
Then use a black crayon or a black marker to draw two eyes in the upper center of the filter.
Cut out a carrot-shaped piece of orange construction paper. Glue it in the center of the filter to make the snowman’s “nose”.
Cut out four or five rough circles of black construction paper to form pieces of “coal”.
Arrange them in a semi-circle and then glue them down to make the snowman’s “mouth”.
Time to add the top hat!
Cut out a rectangular piece of black construction paper and glue it directly on the top of the coffee filter.
Then add a narrow rectangle of black construction paper to the bottom of the hat to form the brim.
Finally, use a white crayon to add a few “snowflakes” falling in the background and you’re done!
Kids might want to add their own twists to this craft by decorating the snowman’s hat, drawing a winter scene in the background, or giving him different colored eyes.
You could even add long eyelashes and long hair to make a “snowwoman”!
