First, let’s take a trip down memory lane and check out some of our other funky craft crazes…

Funky Easter Bunny Craft

First, there was this cute little Funky Easter Bunny Craft Template, this template definitely kicked off the craze being downloaded over 66,000 times!!

Funky Reindeer Craft

Of course, we had to follow up the funky bunny with a Funky Reindeer as Christmas approached. This has to be one of my favorite Christmas craft ideas.

Have you done the Funky Reindeer Craft with your class yet?

Funky Dog Craft

For those students who didn’t celebrate either of these events, we also created the Funky Dog.

How funky is this dog?

Without Further Ado, Introducing the Funky Snowman

The best thing about these templates is you can really let your students unleash their creativity.

Here are just a few ways that this simple template can be transformed into a cute art piece for your students to take home.

The most common way to decorate the funky craft templates is to create a variety of different patterns in each of the sections using a black marker. This is a great opportunity to explore line and patterns with your students.

We then printed the accessories on bright colored paper to add that extra bit of pop to the funky snowman

Another way to decorate the snowman is to use tally marks in each of the sections but going in different directions.

It creates this awesome effect especially when you cut out the template and stick it on a bright background!

As they say, the options are endless…

This cute guy was created using colored pencils, some pompoms for his buttons, and a silver marker to create some snow in the background!

There you have it… a cute snowman activity to finish off your Christmas craft planning in your classroom.

We’d love to see your students’ work.
