Snowman Alphabet Activity
Why We Chose This Activity
My kids are eagerly awaiting another snowstorm so they can build a snowman outside. In the meantime, we made an indoor snowman!
My soon to be 3 year-old knows only two letters so we are working on letter identification. My 4 year-old knows his letters so he enjoys being the helper. I also extended the activity for him that you will see below.
Setting Up and Playing
1. On a large piece of paper, draw a snowman and make sure to give him two arms.
2. Place a piece of double stick tape at the end of each arm. The tape will help hold the mittens in place. It also works well for easy removal to change the mittens.
3. Cut out mittens from construction paper. Write a letter on each mitten. Each pair of mittens should include one lowercase letter and the corresponding uppercase letter. We used the same color mittens for corresponding letters.
That is it! You are ready to play.
Lay all the mittens out and have your child find a matching pair. For children who do not know very many of their letters, I would only pick about five sets for this activity.
When your child has found a matching pair, they stick them on the snowman.
Continue to change the snowman’s mittens until all the pairs have been used.
For my 4 year-old, I said a winter themed word and he had to find the pair of mittens that represented the beginning sound of the word. This was a great way to extend the activity for him.
We just love fun and playful alphabet activities!
