Snowman Snowflake Coloring Pages
Once the holidays are over, it’s time to start thinking about snowflakes and snowmen. I find them just as festive as the holidays and I keep many snow themed decorations up until about Presidents’ Weekend.
Since I try to make everything multi sensory for Kevin, it’s only natural that I would use snowman coloring pages, snowflake coloring pages and other activities on weekends. And snow days, of course.
I normally love winter. I love when it’s cold and snowy, and all the things that go along with it. I love bundling up and going out to shovel, and then coming back in to snuggle in my pajamas with hot chocolate.
So far, this year has been a total bummer. It’s been in the 50s and 60s since winter started, with no big snowstorms in sight. I’m finding it hard to get into the “winter spirit” and we certainly don’t want a fire in the fireplace when it’s 62 degrees out.
But, I still have extended time at home with Kevin due to holidays and weekends, so I thought I’d share the activities we’re doing.
Make sure you come back for our Christmas coloring pages.
Snow Sensory Activities
Not every kid likes to play in the snow. Despite our best efforts of trying to make it fun for him, Kevin never enjoyed it. In fact, most days he treated snow with the same disdain that he has for sand. He loves big gross motor movement activities, like slides, rollercoasters and swings. We tried to replicate that same experience with sledding, but he never enjoyed it.
And you know what? That’s fine if he doesn’t like it. Even though it’s a small thing, sometimes we have to look past our own personal biases. Even ones as simple as “kids love the snow!”
Santa brought us some printer ink (yes, we are that boring sometimes) so I was excited to get going on some of these activities. We’re being extra cautious about where we go and staying home more. But Kevin still has 4 more days at home and I’m running out of sensory activities to do.
This is really cute and uses Q-Tips or cotton swabs. It’s a great snowflake worksheet that also uses fine motor skills.
If you are a teacher or have another reason why you may want to do this skill multiple times, you may want to print them on card stock and get them laminated
Snowman Coloring Pages
This is really cute and good for all abilities. It also can be used for counting skills, matching skills and more.
Winter Coloring Page
When I found this on Canva, it referenced cookies. But, between the heart (valentines!) the snow and the cocoa, this really is a winter themed coloring page more than a holiday one, in my opinion.
Snowflake Coloring and Matching
Here is another one with snowflakes, matching and coloring.
I know parents and teachers have mixed feelings about word copying and lines, but you can ignore that part if you don’t use them. Or, use it as an opportunity to work on fine motor or practice handwriting skills.
You know what else happens in winter? Groundhog Day! I have several Groundhog Day Activities for kids, but those printable worksheets and PDFs are in a separate post.
You can always use the search feature in the right sidebar, as I have lots of other fun activities to go with seasons and holidays.
