Accordion Paper Snowman

It’s time to do some winter crafts with your kids and snowmen are a great theme, hands down.

Playing outside in the snow is the best winter activity kids can do, but unfortunately there are days when it just isn’t possible. Like blizzards or unwanted winter rains. Sometimes you’re just stuck inside and need something fun to do.

Craftsmanship to the rescue!

We love making snowmen (just check out our collection of DIY snowman ideas for kids), and we’ve done it so many different ways. This activity focuses on folding and can be a great opening to get kids interested in origami crafts – because making neat, neat folds is a must. Other than that, this one is a fun project in itself!

Or follow these step by step instructions

Print our accordion paper snowman model (you can get it at the end of this tutorial).

Print on plain print paper.

Color all the parts of the model that need to be colored and cut them out.

Take the snowman’s body part and start folding it like an accordion, from bottom to top (or vice versa).

The pleats should be about a finger wide (just enough to have room around the hole you will punch). No need to be too specific.

Once everything is folded, it’s time to punch the hole through all the folds.

Now, depending on the weight of the paper and the number of folds you have made, you may be able to punch a hole through all the layers in one go. Otherwise, punch a few folds at a time, making sure the hole is always in the same place (drill a new hole through the first ones).

Once you’ve punched through all the layers, insert a paper straw into all the holes (it should fit snugly).

Gently spread out the snowmen – unfold the accordion until you get a snowman shape.

Glue the ribbon (paper) on the hat…

…glue the hat to the accordion paper snowman.

Add eyes and buttons (apply glue to them and press them in place).

Apply glue to the scarf and stick it where the snowman’s head and body meet.

Add glue to the carrot and glue it to the snowman’s face.

If you’re feeling even more creative, you can also add a few twigs to make the snowman’s arms.

That aside, this one is a fun project on it’s own!

Print out our accordion paper snowman craft template (you can grab it at the end of this tutorial).
Print on regular print paper.

Color in all the parts of the template that need coloring and cut them out.

Take the snowman body part and start folding it into an accordion, from bottom to the top (or the other way around).
The folds need to be about a finger wide (just enough that there will be some room around the hole that you’ll punch with the hole puncher). No need for being too precise.

Once everything is folded, it’s time to punch the hole through all the folds.
Now, depending on the paper weight and the number of folds you made, you might be able to punch a hole through all layers in one go. If not, punch through a few folds at a time, making sure the hole is always in the same place (punch new hole through the first ones).

Once you have punched through all layers, insert a paper drinking straw through all holes (should fit nicely).

Gently spread the snowmen – unfold the accordion, until you get a snowman shape.

Add eyes and buttons (apply glue on them and press them on their places).
