If you're looking for an original and creative activity during this festive season, try Snowman PUNS. Along with the pictures you see, I included more samples of my students' snowmen inside the PDF.

Directions: Print and copy the blank snowman. Then have your students brainstorm or Google the names of famous athletes, singers, actors, writers, etc... to find inspiration for their snowmen. I tell them to look for names that can be a "play on words" for all things winter. Have art supplies handy and watch what they come up with. They surprise me every year. Enjoy!

More Snowman Puns:

  • Christopher Walken in a Winter Wonderland
  • I'm Dreaming of a Dwight Christmas (The Office)
  • Tom "Brr"ady
  • Reese Winterspoon
  • Oprah Winfreeze
  • and my personal favorite, "Stay Cold, Ponyboy!" (The Outsiders)

This Product Includes:

  • 1 blank snowman template
  • 8 Snowman Puns to show your students to spark their creativity
