|CREATE|ribbon & contact paper snowman

If you'd like to re-create this you will need the following supplies:
Contact paper (sticky backed plastic)
Googly eyes
Mini pom-pom
Measured ribbons
This craft is designed to test your child's ability to sort the ribbons into the right order, some are smaller and so need to be used for the head, to make it a little easier, you could cut them to the exact width, I wanted T to have a little creative licence as to which order ours were in though. 

We started out by laying the ribbons out in the order we want them on the sticky paper.
The snowman in our project pack is pre-cut so if you are re-creating at home you would need to cut a simple snowman shape.
After sticking the ribbons onto the contact paper, I cut the loose ends of, this would be great cutting practice for your child, T struggles with anything thick or material so I did this for him and he helped by clearing up!
Once we'd cut off the loose ends, we attached the googly eyes and it was good to go, we attached ours to our window with snowflakes on.

Let Them Be Small


  1. Great craft idea! And you can have a lovely craft each year at christmas to remind you of T's age! Xx

  2. I love doing contact paper craft (but why is it so expensive!!). Planning some snowman activities this week so might give this a go.

    1. I get my clear contact paper from WHSmith's in the summer, they usually have it on offer for covering school books x

  3. Great idea. We will defo need to do this next Christmas when M is old enough to take part #craftingprompt
