15 Cute Snowman Craft and Food Ideas

By  | Last Updated:  

With the snow we’ve already received, winter seems to have come early! I’m always on the lookout for fun craft ideas to do on those days that it is just too cold to go outside. I’ve found a group of winners in these Adorable Snowman Crafts and Food Ideas! Boys (and girls) will love making the DIY Snowman Can, DIY Snowman Clothespins, Cute Paper Plate Snowman, Snowman Block Ornament, Snowman Garland, and a DIY Tea Light Snowman Ornament.

I’ve included our winter birthday party snowman-themed dessert table that would be adorable with these great foods: Thumbprint Snowman Cookies, Snowman Snowflake Cookies, Snowman Gingerbread Cookies, Holiday Donut Fun, and Sweet Snowman Cupcakes.  There are even edible crafts: Sledding Marshmallow Snowman, Easy Snowman Favors, and Mustachioed Marshmallow Snowmen. Let it snow!
