Did you know that there are three different types of igloos? Learn more about igloos on Wikipedia.com

Step 1: Download and Print the Free Igloo Template

Download the Free Igloo Template. You will be stapling the printed PDF to sheets of colored paper to cut out the shapes.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Winter Craft Shapes

Print the Igloo Template and staple the pieces to multiple sheets of paper before cutting

Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know that you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Step 3: Cut out Paper Ice Blocks

To make the white rectangles and squares for your paper ice blocks, just cut strips of paper about one inch wide. Stack and line up your strips of paper to cut multiple sheets at a time.

Cut small pieces of white paper for the ice blocks.

You could also give your children strips of white paper and let them cut out the stripes. It’s great cutting practice and wonderful for fine motor skills.

You can also use cotton balls, marshmallows, or mailing labels for your paper ice blocks.

Step 4: How to Make the Igloo Craft

Igloo Craft by Crafting Jeannie

I recommend having a finished igloo so the children can see what the final version will look like.

  1. Decide where the front of your igloo will be (see pictures below). Then, glue the small half-circle onto your igloo.
  2. Glue the black door onto the center of the small blue half-circle (the entrance).
  3. Glue your white squares around the black door on the entrance.
  4. Finally, glue all of your white paper ice blocks onto your igloo.
  5. Don’t forget to write your name on the back.
