Are you gearing up for the cold weather and snow? Create some magic with these fun wizard snowman papercrafts. Just follow this simple guide to create your own.
Colder weather means more time spent indoors. Reading and doing crafts are great ways to keep kids busy with their hands and off of technology. This project combines the two by creating a papercraft inspired by characters from books a lot of kids find magical to read.

Besides being fun, puzzles are an often overlooked educational tool. I’ve used puzzles to teach my children about the world. I also love using 4D Cityscape Time puzzles in our history lessons, as they allow children to see how historical events shape cities and countries.
I believe in hands on learning wherever possible, in all school subjects. So when I was offered the chance to review three new Dr. Livingston human body jumbo learning puzzles, I said yes. I knew these puzzles would be fantastic for teaching my children about the human body.

Winter Snowman Craft Materials
To make this craft, you’ll need:
- Wizard snowman printable (download both pages at the end of this post)
- Blank copy paper
- Glue stick
- Tea bags or coffee grounds
How to Use Our Snowman Template
To start, print out the wizard snowman printable by clicking on the images below.
Cut out the snowman shape.
Fold three pieces of copy paper in half and trace the snowman shape onto them.
Cut out the shapes to get 6 snowman shapes.
How to Age Your Paper
To create a magical aged appearance, lay the snowman cutouts on a baking sheet.
Prepare a strong coffee or tea and carefully pour on the cutouts.
Let this sit for 2-3 hours.
After the desired affect is achieved, carefully take snowman cut outs out of the tea and place on a paper towel to dry.
Once they are dry you are ready to build a snowman!
How to Build Your Paper Snowman
First, fold each snowman shape in half.
Using a glue stick, glue Side A to Side B (see image). Repeat with 5 of the snowman shapes.
As a final step, put glue on the front side. Carefully wrap the back side around and adhere to make a 3D snowman.
Decorating Your Wizard Snowman
Now it’s time to dress your snowman up! We created snowman accessories inspired by the different houses in the Harry Potter books.
Choose a hat, a wand, and a colored scarf that best suits your tastes. Add a broom if desired. Glue on a paper carrot nose and draw on eyes if desired.
Displaying Your Snowman Ornament
You can tape a loop of embroidery thread to the back of the snowman’s head to hang on the tree as an ornament.
You can also cut the bottom flat so that your snowman can stand up on a table.
Let these wizard snowman cast a fun crafting spell on your kids the next time they’re looking for an activity to do!
