Snowman Party

Updated on January 08, 2014

A Winter Celebration

Snowmen are easy to spot during the winter holiday season. From snowman decorations, plush toys, and tv specials, snowmen have become a winter holiday icon. Turn that familiar frosty friend into a reason to celebrate Christ. Throw a Snowman party and use the Trinity Snowman poem to help teach an important biblical truth.

The Trinity Snowman

One year I was in charge of teaching a multi-age Sunday School class. I needed to come up with a Christmas lesson and I started searching the internet for something that would work. I knew one symbol that most children could relate to during the winter holiday season was snowmen. I couldn't find anything to tie snowmen into a lesson, but I felt inspired after reading some snowman party ideas on The Sunday School Network. The result was the Trinity Snowman poem. Use this poem to teach children about the Trinity while having fun at the same time. (A black and white printable version of the poem is available down below).

Advent Activities for Young Children

Truth in the Tinsel is a wonderful way to talk about the true meaning of Christmas with your children. You'll get 24 days of Scripture reading, ornament crafts, talking points and extension activities. Plus fun printables and templates! This is the perfect book for kids of any age-from preschool to elementary!

Plan time to read the poem. Use the following pattern to create a felt-board set to help illustrate the poem. Afterwards, the children can create their own snowman page to bring home.

Supplies:

snowman parts printout, printed on cardstock

scissors

glue

crayons

misc. decorations

light blue cardstock/white cardstock

Cut out the pieces of the snowman. While retelling the poem, have the child glue the appropriate pieces for that portion of the poem. Mount on light blue cardstock. Finish decorating with scrapbook supplies, stickers or crayons.

Having a craft station at the party fills the time with an organized activity and allows guests to come home with a reminder of the lesson. Here are several crafty snowman-theme ideas suitable for various ages:

How to Make a Snow Globe

Pin the Nose on the Snowman

Supplies:

snowman printout

tape/ sticky tac

bandana

Print onto cardstock and cut out the noses. Play like Pin the Tail on the Donkey.

Snowman Snacks

You can't have a snowman party without some snowmen snacks! You'll find many appetizing snowy treats in the list below:

Our Favorite Wintertime Children's Book

S Is for Snowman
S Is for Snowman

A wintertime ABC book exploring the blessings of the season.

 

A Snowman Party doesn't have to be in December. Cool down your summer with a snowy celebration on June 25th to celebrate LEON Day.

      Two thumbs up. What a lovely poem. I would've never considered using a snowman to teach about God and His Son. Brilliant!

      Great idea!!! Here in Ireland we don't really get much snow and you'd only see snowmen on decorations, tv and cards so itd be a great way to bring one of the images of Christmas in in a fun way.
