A Sensory Snowman

We read ‘The Snowman’ this morning.

A book we have read year after year after year…

…it never loses it’s magic!

It wasn’t the right kind of snow to build snowmen outside though…so we ‘built’ some inside…

First I printed out a variety of snowman stencils which I found on the web..

(including a snowman maze to satisfy Alfie’s need for mazes!)

…then I filled a plastic tray with snowman ‘accessories’…

…which was then covered by a layer of snow…

The kids were then given a spoon each, and had to dig out snow and ‘build’ it on to the snowman shape..

Next they had to dig for ‘accessories’ and decorate their snowmen…

Of course, you might find someone might EAT the snow…

….and you must warn them that their snowmen will MELT…

…but that’s all part of the fun!
