Snowman Craft for Isaiah 1:18 

snowmen for Isaiah 1:18

Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow

You will need;

  • Red construction paper
  • White paper
  • Black construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Hole punch
  • Crayons or markers
make 3 circles

Make a 4 1/2 inch circle, a 3 1/2 circle, and a 2 1/2 circle from white and red paper. You could use other sizes but, you need a large, medium, and a small circle.

To make a snowman, glue the small red circle to the top of the medium. Then glue the large circle to the other two. Do the for the white circles. 

make the hat

To make the hats, fold a 4 by 6 inch rectangle in half so that is 3 inches high. Make a mark 1/2 inches from the fold and 1 inch from each side. Continue the line up to the cut edge. Cut on the line and the fold. 

finish your snowmen

Use the hole punch to make circles for the eyes and mouth. You will need enough for the red and white sides. Cut a small triangle from orange paper for each nose.

A less messy option is to use a crayon or marker to make the nose, eyes, and mouth.

To finish your snowman, write sin on the red side.

Also, from the red paper, cut a small heart. In the center of the heart, draw a cross. Glue the heart to the white snowman.

In Job 37, Elihu talks about God and the weather. In verse six, we learn that God tells the snow to fall on the earth. In verse ten, God gives ice and freezes the waters.

Supplies;

  • Light blue paper for the background
  • A scrap of dark blue construction paper
  • Scraps of brown paper 
  • White paper
  • Scissors
  • White crayon
  • White glue
  • Silver and/or blue glitter (optional)
  • Foil (optional)
  • Hole punch (optional)

This craft has three options to make the snow and ice.

cut your shapes

Cut a 4 1/2 by 3-inch rectangle from dark blue paper. Cut off the corners to make it into an oval. This will be a pond or lake. Glue to the background. You could use a glue stick for this part.

To make the house, cut a 3-inch square from brown paper. Also, cut a 5 1/2 by 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 triangle from white paper for the roof.

Making the pond and house is the same for each option.

Option 1 This one is not messy at all.

cut a piece of foil for the pond

Cut a piece of foil slightly smaller than the blue oval. Then glue the foil to the center of the oval to represent ice.

Also, cut some small triangles from the foil and glue them to the edge of the white paper. The triangles will represent icicles. 

with a crayon add snowflakes

With a white crayon or pencil, make some dots to represent snowflakes.

Option 2 is a little messy.

use a hole punch

Instead of a white crayon, use a hole punch and glue to make the snowflakes.

Option 3 is messy but fun. 

add glue to picture

Place the picture in a tray. 

Cover the oval with white glue. Also, make some lines with the glue on the edge of the white paper.

add glitter and paper snowflakes

Sprinkle the glue with glitter to represent ice. To make it less messy, use a tray to catch the glitter.

Cut two rectangles from black paper. They need to be 7 by 2 inches. Cut two more rectangles, 5 by 1 1/2 inches. Draw a Christmas tree shape on the rectangles.

When the paint is dry, write, “wash me and I will be whiter than snow” with a pen or marker.

If you don't want to paint, you can color the trees white with a crayon. Be careful not to press too hard so that you rip the trees.
