Snowmen are a winter project that we can use before Christmas, during the Christmas season and even for a time after Christmas. So if you are very limited in time, snowmen are the way to go. The pattern for this can be printed on white paper and then just colored if you want to make a short project of it. Or there are also patterns for the vest, hat and pockets that can be printed on colored papers and used instead. The body pattern is in two pieces that need to be printed, overlapped where they match, taped and then copied. This snowman is finished on both sides. Vary the colors on each side. This project is easy enough for any grade to do. Finished length is 16 1/2″.
