Adorable Snowmen Family

Create an Adorable Snowmen Family for the holidays, with this craft that is fun for everyone in the family. These little snow people are super easy to make! Put your snow people together with Stryofoam balls, and then decorate them with hats, scarves, and even hairstyles. Plus, you can decorate each snowman differently, so you can have a whole bunch of unique snowmen. Just imagine how you can change their scarves, their aprons, the color of their earmuffs, and much more to make a full family of snowmen.


  • Plaid Apple Barrel Paint-20504 Black, 20589 Harvest Orange
  • Stryofoam Balls™ in small, medium and large sizes
  • Craft glue
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Fabric scraps
  • Ribbon
  • Snowflake brads


  1. Select the sizes of the snow people you want to make. Styrofoam™ balls come in many sizes, so you could make really large snow people or very small.  Use a large ball as the base of your snow person and a smaller ball as the head.  I even used a tiny ball to create a bun on the head of my “mommy” snow woman.  Glue the balls together.  If you find that the balls are slipping while the glue dries, run a toothpick through the balls to hold them in place.
  2. Once you have your snow people put together, the fun can begin!  Use Apple Barrel paints to create eyes, noses and mouths.  You could even paint buttons on the body of your snow people!
  3. Use pipe cleaners to create arms and, if you don’t want to paint the noses on, cut small pieces of orange pipe cleaners as carrot noses.  Pipe cleaners can be pushed into the balls, no glue needed!
  4. Use fabric scraps, ribbons and brads to dress your snow people.

Project Tip:

For painting the faces and other fine detail work, use a toothpick  instead of a paintbrush. If children are painting, be sure to clip off the sharp end before allowing them to use the toothpick.
