I made snowman puzzles for color recognition and fine motor skills. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and and cut them out. I then laminated them and cut along the lines to make five pieces for each puzzle.
I set the puzzle pieces out on the table. You can either keep the puzzles grouped by color or mix them up to make them more challenging for the children to put each puzzle together.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added Snowman Letter Sequence.
I made a snowman match for color recognition. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and and cut them out.
I set the snowman cards and color circles out in a basket making sure the colors were mixed up. The children picked a snowman card and then found the matching color circle and put it in the blank circle on the card.

We are working on our snowman theme this week and I made alphabet cards which are great for letter recognition and review. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
I attached the cards to craft sticks and set them out in a plastic jar. The children put the snowmen in alphabetical order. I also use them at group time for a letter review.
You can also make a matching activity by printing two copies of the snowman cards. I have included both upper and lowercase letters.

We are working on our snowman theme this week and a I put together a felt snowman activity that the children really enjoyed. I had previously purchased felt pieces from michaels craft store so I already had quite a stash built up. They are inexpensive but sometimes they have sales that make them worth buying even if do not need any at the time.
I free cut all of the pieces using a really good pair of scissors. I made three different sized circles for the snowman out of white felt. I then made arms (twig shaped) ... mittens ... a scarf ... a hat and a broom. I also made the eyes ... mouth and nose.
I set all of the snowman pieces out in a center and the children put them together deciding which piece went where. They could work individually or in pairs. Once the snowman was built the children decided on a name and talked about why snow forms and what will happens to snow when it gets warmer. They then took the snowman apart for the next child to work on.
