Frosty the Snowman Creative Writing Activity: Frosty Gets a New Look

Updated on November 18, 2012

Creative Writing for Kids

Encouraging kids to write creatively is not always an easy task. The more fun and original you can make the activity, the more willing your students will be to tap into their creative ideas. Adding a drawing component makes it even more exciting for kids. So here is a perfect winter idea to help jump start those creative juices. Included is also a rubric to help you and your students know what they will be graded on.

Frosty the Snowman Writing Activity

Frosty was interviewed recently and the reviews were not good. He received a lot of negative feedback about his look. Poor Frosty the Snowman. He has a corncob pipe, a button nose, and two eyes made of coal-not exactly an “in” kind of look. And dancing around in a silk hat? Well, it is not something that you are likely to see on MTV any time soon.

So following the interview Frosty announced that he is shedding his old image for something more modern, more in touch with 2010’s. However, he admitted, “The transition hasn’t been as easy as I thought it would be. I don’t even know what’s ‘in’ these days. I need help!”

Clearly, Frosty is in desperate need of young, bright students to act as image consultants. So Frosty is proposing a contest to young and upcoming consultants to help create a new image for Frosty. In your contest submission you must include: a drawing of his new attire, a description of his new song or poem to be his new theme song. And you will also be judged on your creativity. So what kind of image will you give Frosty? Will it be an Iron Man Frosty, Rapping Frosty, Basketball Frosty or a Super Model Frosty? What can you come up with for Frosty’s new look?

Make a drawing showing your new Frosty and his or her new look. With the drawing, include a written description of your Frosty. (What is Frosty like? How old is Frosty? What does he like to do? Etc…)

Finally, give Frosty an updated song. You know the old song, “Frosty the Snowman.” Update the lyrics to fit the new Frosty, using the same tune. Or write a new song, rap or poem to go with Frosty’s new image. Remember, you are just one of many consultants entering the contest to revamp Frosty’s image. So how convincing can you be? Don’t waste any more time, get started!

Writing is not an area of strength for the students in our school. So any way that we are able to encourage and promote writing, the better. My kids really enjoyed this activity because it also involved drawing which is something that they really enjoy doing. There were some really creative ideas that they came up with. Some used the suggestions like a rapper frosty but others came up with things like Cheerleader Frosty, Ninja Frosty, and even a Knight Frosty. I hope that you and your students enjoy this creative writing activity. Sometimes it's fun to take a break from the "must do" stuff and have a little fun!
