A few more activities with a snowman theme...
Melted Snowman Silly Putty
They did enjoy this (not T., of course...wouldn't touch it after the initial try! LOL). I purchased these from OTC for A.'s 3rd grade class as a little something for around the holiday times. Since class numbers have dropped since I ordered the class gifts...my kiddos here are "benefiting". It's a neat concept...the outside of the snowman tends to rub off...about a third of them came with paint rubbed off in spots on the containers and thus flakes get in with the silly putty but the kids don't seem to mind. Good sensory activity!
We combined it with having potato flake trays also. So with two sensory experiences...we didn't get to everything planned. Oh well, some other time!
Lovely free printable that can be found at http://thekidsplacehomedaycareandpreschool.blogspot.com/2011/11/free-printable-snowman-colors.html.
I did provide tweezers but they chose to use their fingers as the perler beads were really too little to manipulate to their button places with the tweezers. :-) Matching the hat to the snowman was great for color review and I love that they are labeled with the color words with the font I like the best.
I have a large selection of stamps, a garage sale finding. You could just use magazine pictures or print some as well. So, the other day I had my boys go through the stamps and find as many matching rhyming pairs of stamps they could find. Actually there wasn't very many! I was surprised there weren't more. The picture is pretty self explanatory for how I created it. The children enjoyed this and it was great review!
