Kids Indoor Winter Activity – Snowman Bowling – With Free Printable

Let’s face it. While winter is a great time for kids to play outside, the cold and wet can get pretty crazy at times, and we often need to find ways to entertain them indoors. Finding new kids indoor winter activities can be a lifesaver on these occasions. That’s why I love this easy to set up Snowman Bowling activity! It’s perfect for toddlers who need a bit of distraction.

This is also a reminder to save those toilet paper rolls, as there are tons of crafts and activities you can do with them! Also save the rolls from paper towels and wrapping paper, as they can always be cut to size, as well!

To begin, print out the snowmen and trace around their bodies with your pencil/pen. This just gives them a bit of definition so they stand out against the white background.

Next, cut out the snowmen so they are around 3 inches by 4½ inches. There’s no need to make it difficult, so just cut the rectangles to surround them.

Use your glue gun to attach the snowmen to the paper rolls. Again, no need to be fancy. You can just dab a bit of glue in the middle to attach. They’re made of paper, so they are going to be a bit flimsy no matter what you do. You could always print them on card stock instead if you want extra durability.

Roll up the pair of socks to make a “snowball.” Then line up the snowmen like bowling pins and roll the snowball to try and knock them down.
