Tips

  • Because the paint may get the toilet paper roll soggy after a while, be sure to have extras.
  • To make the snowman more realistic, use "googly" eyes and glue on some small buttons. Make a hat out of felt.
  • You can also make different colored snowmen by using other tempura paint colors. Use a toilet paper roll for each color if you don't want them mixed up.

  • Markers
  • White tempura paint
  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Black construction paper, small paper plates, etc.
  • Other craft "goodies", such as glue, confetti, buttons, felt, "googly" eyes, etc.
