In the meadow we can build a snowman….unless there are dangerous wind chills like we have today and much of this week. And, it’s just super cold outside. We don’t have any snow. No worries! We have dozens of Simple Snowman Activities that we can do indoors. It also will help us practice fine motor and sensory, since we are on an extended break.
I love the holidays, winter and snow. Very early on in our marriage, I realized that I HATED the way the house feels when I take down the Christmas decorations. So I started buying more snowman decorations and less Christmas stuff as we invested in holiday decorations. Then I leave the snow man things up for January and some of February. Usually once Lent starts, I get out my Easter things.
But I hated winter with a bare mantle on the fireplace and all the pretty stuff gone. Problem solved! Here are 20 super easy snowman crafts for you to do with your kids, and I made sure that they have a focus on sensory and fine motor. I would rather do a simple craft with Kevin and let him do what he can, rather than a more complex one and have me do so much hand-over-hand.
