Roll A Snowman Game
Does your family enjoy game nights as much as mine does? We’ve played this roll a snowman dice game over the years in my home mostly on a whim because there is no planning needed! All you need is this darling printable and a few simple items to play.
Roll a die, add the corresponding snowman piece to the snowman’s body and the first person to build their snowman wins! It’s a fun dice game for kids and adults of all ages. My young kids love it, but you could also have your teenage children play it to see who gets out of doing the dishes after dinner – get creative!
Roll A Snowman Dice Game For Kids
- 1 die
- 1 printable game piece per person (download here)
- Envelope or Ziploc bag to keep your pieces in to use again
- First, print off a snowman printable for each player. Cut out all the accessories and set to the side.
- The game starts with the youngest person and will continue clockwise. Roll the die and collect the accessory for the number you roll. Place that piece on the body of your snowman.
- If you roll a number for a part you already have, play passes to the next player.
- The first person to have all their accessories on their snowman wins!
- When you are finished, place all the pieces in a bag or envelope and save it until the next time you’re ready to play!

Roll a snowman – free download – I tried your link several times but there is a charge. Am I doing something wrong?
Hi Jenni, while most of the printables on our site are free, unfortunately, this roll a snowman game isn’t one of them. When we published this game on our site a few years ago, we did offer it free for the first week before we put it in our shop. Thanks for stopping by!
What an awesome and cute game idea! I need to do this with my boys. Thanks for sharing at our link party!
Thaks so much, I was looking for a wonderful gift game to give families this Christmas.
I am writing a round up post about Christmas games for families. I was wondering if I could use your photo with your website name and post title with proper link back to your site?
Absolutely! Thanks for asking!
I love the idea of rolling for the snowman, I would like to adapt your idea for my music classes. Instead of rolling a die with numbers, I’d like for them to roll a die with note values to complete the snowman. I will only be using this for educational purposes and will give you full credit and link back to your blog post. I create my lessons in SMART Notebook for the IWB SMART Board and once I create the lesson, I’d like to post the lesson on my blog. The children will come to the SMARTBoard to roll the note value and complete the snowman at the SMARTBoard.
Such a cute idea, and I’m so glad you shared it! I use the game as a basis for our preschool snack this week. Instead of using the paper cut out snowman, we used powdered donuts, pretzels, candy corn and such to build our snowmen. It was a perfect activity for 6 little ones learning about the letter S. Thank you!
I used this game today for my daughter’s winter party. The kids had a blast. Thank you for sharing.
