Step 2: Print the Igloo Template directly onto Construction Paper

To make this craft super easy, just print the template directly onto construction paper. My mind was blown when I learned to print directly onto construction paper!

Igloo craft pieces

Just trim the construction paper to the 8×10 size using copy paper as a template (you should easily be able to trim multiple sheets at a time).

And, if you can, adjust your printer settings to “draft” quality or a setting that uses less ink, which might be helpful as well. Construction paper is pretty notorious for absorbing liquid.

Then, if you plan to pre-cut the pieces, just get busy cutting out your shapes. Or let the children cut out their own igloos.

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.

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 3: How to Make the Igloo Craft

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

  1. Cut out your light blue igloo and glue it to the dark blue paper.
  2. Use a glue stick to glue your white paper ice blocks onto your igloo. Make sure to fill it all the way in.
  3. Use a white window marker or dip a Q-tip into white paint and dot your paper to make snow.
  4. Finally, decorate your igloo however you like.
  5. Don’t forget to write your name on the back.
