Craft Idea: A simple craft idea to complement "Sneezy the Snowman" could be making paper snowmen. Here's how you can do it:


  • White construction paper or cardstock
  • Markers, crayons, or colored pencils
  • Scissors
  • Glue or tape
  • Optional: googly eyes, buttons, yarn, or other embellishments


  1. Fold the white paper in half.
  2. Draw a snowman shape on one half of the folded paper. Make sure the bottom of the snowman touches the fold, so it stays connected when you cut it out.
  3. Cut out the snowman shape along the lines you drew.
  4. Decorate your snowman with markers, crayons, or colored pencils. Add a face, buttons, a scarf, and any other details you like.
  5. If you have googly eyes, buttons, or other embellishments, glue them onto your snowman.
  6. Let your snowman dry if you used glue, then display it proudly!

This craft is simple, fun, and ties in perfectly with the theme of "Sneezy the Snowman." It also allows kids to get creative and express themselves while engaging with the story.

Snack Idea: Snowman Yogurt Cups


  • Vanilla or plain yogurt
  • Mini chocolate chips or raisins
  • Pretzel sticks or small pretzel twists
  • Clear plastic cups or small bowls


  1. Fill clear plastic cups or small bowls with vanilla or plain yogurt.
  2. Use a permanent marker to draw a snowman face (eyes, nose, mouth) on the side of each cup. Be sure to leave enough space below the face for the snowman's body.
  3. Add mini chocolate chips or raisins to the yogurt to create the snowman's eyes, mouth, and buttons.
  4. Break pretzel sticks in half and stick them into the yogurt to create the snowman's arms.
