Snowman Handprint Hat

Snowman Jingle Handprint Hat by Crayon Box Chronicles for Preschool Spot

Winter is our favorite time of year for easy holiday crafts for kids at Crayon Box Chronicles. Today’s simple snowman handprint hat is lots of fun and adds a little jingle to your holiday cheer.

You’ll need the following materials:

  • Construction paper—red, black, white, orange
  • Buttons
  • Yarn
  • Google eyes
  • Jingle bells
  • Mason jar lids or cans
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Stapler or Tape

Materials for snowman headband

If you don’t have buttons, yarn, or goggle eyes, simply replace them with scrap construction paper or felt.

Tracing circles for snowman headband craft for kids

Trace your snowman circles using mason jar lids, soup cans, or anything similar you have on-hand. Craft punches work great too, if available.  Once your finished tracing, cut out the circles.

Next, cut out the orange nose and black top hat for the snowman.

Trace your child’s hand [or have them do it—great for fine motor development] on black construction paper, including their wrists. I cleaned up my sons adorable bubble fingers after he finished tracing. Now, the fun part!

Glue on your buttons, eyes, nose, scarf [looped around the neck], and add any bling to your top hat. If you don’t have a shimmery pipe cleaner, substitute with decorative paper, sequins, or anything colorful. Easy paper crafts are a great way to incorporate lots of fun, inexpensive projects for children.

Attach snowman to headband

Attach your handprints, making sure the thumbs face the correct way. Once your snowman is complete, you’re ready to attach it to the headband. Measure your child’s head, leaving 1-2 inches for overlap. Cut two strips, 2.5′ wide, 11′ long [vertically] using a single piece of 8 1/2 x 11 construction paper.

Staple or tape the band together at one end and attach your decorated snowman. If you’d like the front of the band to come down to the middle of the forehead, attach your snowman higher on the band.

To add a final touch of holiday sound, thread two small jingle bells through the yarn and knot. Close the open end using your preferred method—we chose staples—you’re ready to jingle the day away.

Snowman crafts and activities are so much fun for kids.
