Here's a little rhyme to do before you get started:
Chubby Little Snowman
A classic rhyme
A chubby little snowman Open arms wide.
Had a carrot nose. Point to nose.
Along came a bunny Hold up two fingers to make a bunny.
And what do you suppose? Hold up bent arms on either side.
That hungry little bunny Hold up two fingers to make a bunny.
Looking for his lunch Make bunny look around.
Ate that little snowman's nose Pretend to grab nose.
Nibble, nibble, crunch. Pretend bunny is eating.
I even got out a felt snowman out for the girls for them to point to the carrot nose. Sweet Girl took it a step further by getting out a little bunny toy and acting out the rhyme.
Supplies Needed: snowman pattern (I got this one from a book called Little Kids Can...Cut!, but any pattern with a thick outline would do), scissors, construction paper, buttons, fabric scrap for scarf, markers/crayons, glue stick
What to do:
- Have your child cut out the snowman pattern. (I helped some with the hat.) Remember: Encourage cutting close to the lines, but the circles do not have to be perfect! It's all about introducing cutting curves.
- Let your child arrange circles from smallest to biggest on a piece of construction paper and glue in place.
- Have your child count out how many buttons he/she wants to use on the snowman and glue in place.
- Let your child color/embellish the snowman.
- Introduce him (or her) to all of your other snowmen!
