It’s finally winter! While there isn’t much snow in Arizona, we do sometimes just wanna build a snowman. At least we can draw one. Tap into your imagination and gather your tools.

Getting started

You’ll need:

  • Sketchbook or some paper
  • Colorful drawing instruments, such as markers or colored pencils
  • Imagination

Watch our video:

For inspiration for your snowperson – it can be a boy or girl – you may flip through some board books or animated cartoons. You might also ask yourself:

  • What kind of snowperson will I draw? Will he/she have a specific personality?
  • Where is this snowperson? It can just be by itself, but it can also be in a park or an imaginary scene.
  • Is there a story to my drawing? What is it? Maybe the snowperson is on an adventure.

Remember, you should draw your snowperson the way you imagine it. And don’t worry about it looking “perfect” – focus on having fun.
