Free Printable Snowman Template

The template includes a paper that has 7 snowman pieces: the 3 snow balls creating the base, body and head, as well as the snowman’s top hat, arms & scarf. I have pre-applied the facial features (complete with carrot nose) and buttons on the body so that cutting out the pieces is more do-able for younger kids.
