On the Edmonton C.O.W. Bus we are very excited to start 2015 off right. We brought out our best snowman activities and are eager to share some wonderful winter stories with our visitors. One of our favourites is The Mitten by Jan Brett. This book is about a grandmother who knits snow-white mittens for her grandson, who takes them on an adventure. This story comes with some fun props that all ages are sure to enjoy.
During the winter months, many easy outdoor activities—like building snowmen—are available for families. Try some of these:
- Have a snowball fight
- Go sledding
- Catch snowflakes on your tongue
- Make a snow angel
- Build a snow fort
- Collect pine cones
When it’s time to come inside and warm up, consider building a snowman inside. Use things such as paper plates or cotton balls for the body, and scraps of fabric or craft supplies to finish the snowman.
Enjoy this great interactive snowman activity we found online!
Sing along with this “I’m a Little Snowman” tune!
