There’s so many Snowman activities for kids to make, but this clothespin snowman craft idea is ‘snow’ adorable!
Whenever we find a thematic craft for kids activity we always look for some ‘sneaky’ educational aspect as well, just to make it extra worthwhile! So when we saw these snowmen pegs we knew they’d be perfect for our Snowman clip cards!
Our kids love using clip cards to help them practice and consolidate their understandings. Because they are hands-on they don’t always realise they are learning!
Clip card activities are also great for building fine motor strength and are excellent activities for independent or partner work learning stations.

Clothespin Snowman Craft in the Classroom
These clothespin snowmen are ‘snow cute’ and are a very simple to make. Our Kindergarten kids were involved in the craft making including painting the pegs white. We finished the making sequence by adding a pipe cleaner scarf, and a pompom carrot nose.
The kids then used them in clothespin activities, including our FREE snowman clip cards (link is at end of post). These activities are great for:
- building fine motor muscle strength
- strengthening the pinching action between the thumb and finger
- Making learning FUN!
Clothespin Snowman Craft Instructions
First we painted each wooden clothespin white with acrylic paint. You could also sprinkle with glitter to add some extra sparkle. Depending on the quality of your paint you made need to do a couple of coats. Leave the clothespins to dry.
Next we wrapped a chenille stick around the peg for a scarf. You can also use ribbon or wool, whatever craft scraps you have.
For the nose we used mini orange pom poms. Glue onto the wooden clothespin with clear glue. Leave to dry.
Finally we used a sharpie to draw on the eyes, and mouth. We also drew on some buttons. You can stick sequins on if you like!
These clothespin snowmen are so cute and are fun to use with our FREE Teaching Number Recognition Snowman Clip cards.
