Snowman Activities for Preschoolers with Free Printables

Sunshine loves to play in the snow.  One of her favorite outdoor winter activities is building a snowman.  It only seemed fitting to create snowman activities for her.  All activities are designed for preschoolers and come with free printables.  Sunshine is loving them!

Here's what's on our Montessori shelves!

Language

S is for Snowman

Sunshine continues to struggle learning her letters and sounds.  After speaking to her doctor we believe that she may have some learning disabilities.  These combined with her vision impairment are proving to be a challenge in the classroom.  We're excited to help her out in as many ways as we can so she can be successful.

In this activity, Sunshine will glue cotton balls onto the dots provided to create the letter "s" that will stand out from the page.

Snowman Nomenclature Cards

Sunshine enjoys the process of matching three-part cards.  In this activity she will match up parts of a snowman.  I just love the images in this activity.

Math

Snowman Shapes

Sunshine is taking an interest in shapes right now.  She was so exited to show me a pentagon this week and tell me how many sides it has.  When I saw this activity, I couldn't resist adding it to her shelves.  Sunshine will be so excited to learn some new shapes and review old ones.

Building a Snowman Sequence

Sunshine will sequence the cards provided and place the number under each step in order.  I love the cards used for this activity because after the first few, Sunshine will really need to pay attention to details.  It's not as simple as it looks.

Science

Sunshine is so excited about this activity.  It's definitely something new for her to try.  We will be making the snowmen together and then carrying out the experiment during learning time.  I love that this is not only a science experiment but also a great way for her to practice fine motor skills.

Practical Life

Snowman Water Transfer

Sunshine will practice her pouring skills, pouring water into each of the snowmen.  Once finished she can use the dropper to transfer the water back into the glass.

Snowman Cutting Activity

Sunshine has been begging for a new cutting activity, even though she really struggles to develop the skill.  I wasn't going to disappoint her!  In this activity, Sunshine will cut on the lines between each snowman using the scissors provided.

Sensorial

Metal Inset Shaving Cream Activity

Sunshine is struggling with writing skills, so we've decided to back up and start from the very beginning of the Montessori writing curriculum, using the metal insets.  However, we're not using them with a pencil yet.  Instead we will spray shaving cream on the cookie sheet provided. Sunshine will then place the metal inset on top of the shaving cream and trace the shape using her finger.

We've decided to use the circle shaped metal inset, so she can create her own snowman in the shaving cream.

Snowman Invitation to Play

We were hoping to have snow this week to build a snowman outside, but it's supposed to be warm all week. So instead we created a Snowman Invitation to Play.  Sunshine can create as many snowmen as she'd like using the materials provided.  Materials include:

Snowman Sensory Bin

I am so pleased with this sensory bin.  It may be my favorite yet.  Sunshine is enjoying it as well.  What's more fun than a snowman themed sensory bin, especially when it's made with items you have on hand at home?  The sensory bin includes:
We are so excited for such a fun time with our snowman activities in the classroom.  Sunshine is so happy when she sees scissors, play dough and a sensory bin on her shelves.
