We have been a bit short on snow so far this winter. We have gotten a few days with snow, but we have not been able to make a snowman yet. Today, we want to share a snowman activity that helps work on name writing skills in a fun way! This activity is perfect for kids from three to six and can be done at home or in a classroom!

Materials We Used
Construction Paper (Blue, White, Brown, Black)
Crayons or Markers
The prep work for this is super easy! I cut out stick arms from the brown paper, a hat from the black paper, and white circles from the white paper. If your child or the children in your classroom have good scissor skills, you can just draw the shapes and let them do all of the cutting! You will need a circle for each letter of the child’s name and then an additional circle for the face.
I started by having my daughter draw a face on one of the white circles. Next, I helped her write a letter from her name on each circle. After that was done, I gave her the glue and had her glue everything on the paper.
This simple activity is a great way to work on name writing!

We have not had a lot of snow in Ohio this year. My toddler is so excited to make a snowman, but has not been able to do that yet. Today, we decided to make our own winter fun with this open ended snowman. This craft is great for kids from three to five and can be done at home or in a classroom setting. We encourage you to use whatever materials you have on hand, but we will list what we used!

White Paper (We used three pieces.)
Blue Construction Paper
Glue (We used bottled glue, but if I had to do it again, I’d use a glue stick.)
We started by cutting out three circles from the white paper. My daughter is new to using scissors, so she needed assistance, but older children should be able to do it themselves. She decided to use craft scissors with a decorative edge. I let her decide how big each circle should be.
Next, I gave her the glue and had her glue down the circles on the paper. I did not offer her any guidance with this.
After the circles were glued on, I helped her glue on the eyes.
To finish the snowman, I asked my toddler to tell me what other parts she wanted on her snowman and we drew them together. She is newly three, so she needed more help with this than a four or five year old would. The end result was a unique and adorable snowman!

We love Starbucks! Sadly, we do not have one close to us and even if we did, our budget would not allow for more than a few visits a week. Today, we want to share a few Starbucks drinks that you can make at home!
