Kids will be delighted with this simple coffee filter snowman. The simplicity of this craft makes it ideal for completing with preschool and kindergarten kids. Use this snowman craft during Christmas for a fun holiday craft, or save it until January between Christmas and Valentine’s day to spice up your lessons during that time. You can also make this easy snowman craft for school when studying the letter S!
It is also great to read some books about snowman before or after doing the craft. Here are some books I would like to recommend:
Easy Snowman Craft for Preschool
- Coffee filters (2 per snowman)
- Pom poms
- Construction paper
- Googly eyes
- Cut out the center part of one coffee filter, leaving the other filter whole. The smaller filter piece will become the snowman’s body.
- Glue the coffee filters to a piece of paper stacked just like a snowman.
- Glue three buttons to the bottom coffee filter.
- Glue on two googly eyes, draw on a mouth, and draw on a nose.
- Glue two pom poms to either side of the snowman’s head to become earmuffs. Draw on the earmuff headband with markers.
- Wait for the snowman to dry before sending it home with the kids.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
