My school is on day 4 of snow days! Who knows when we will get to go back! It is a winter wonderland around here! It looks beautiful and students will be so excited to do snowmen themed activities.
Who doesn’t love the Snowmen books?? My kids really enjoy this series and I have to confess that I love them too. It is just kind of fun to think about your snowman coming to life and doing all kinds of fun things!
How fun would this be to make sparkling snow play dough? Students then could make their own snowmen in class! EHow shared their recipe for this fun activity. Click the picture to be taken to their site to see how to do it. It looks super easy and I know the kids would have a blast with it!
This is genius!! Students can make their own snow measuring stick!!! Marylea from Pink and Green Mama shared this fun craft (click the picture to go to her site). I can see how excited students would be to use their snow measuring stick each time it snows. What a great way to get in some math!
Mrs. Karen (click the picture to go to her site) shared this super cute snowman craft! Easy to do and would make a great display of snowmen on your wall.
Kids really like the can…are…have activities. You can download this freebie from me by clicking on the picture above!
This is a Snowmen at Night sequencing that we did. The snowmen were cut out of scrapbooking paper. The kids loved doing this activity. They thought the spray on snow was just pretty cool!
Snowman soup makes a great take home treat or party treat for your students! Goes so well with the Snowmen books.

Join Tiffani over at Time 4 Kindergarten and add your favorite cookie recipe! Perhaps you’ll find some new favorites too!
I hope if you are having snow days too that you are enjoying them! If you are still at school, you are at least not having to make them up later.
4 days!!! Oh, you're so lucky:)
I love all the cool stuff you posted. I'm pinning away.
Thank you and enjoy your extra days.
Ended up with 5 snow days, Barb! Thank you for the pins!

Lot's of great ideas! I love that snowman picture. We will do snowmen when we come back from Chrismas break- right now my firsties are working on penguins and having so much fun…I know they'll love snowmen just as much.
Thank you Maria! Have fun working on penguins- those are so much fun too!

Thanks so much for linking up. Your recipe looks yummy and easy to make. I hope you are enjoying your snow days. I can only with for snow here in California, all we have is rain and wind.
Thank you Tiffani for having this linky! The bon bons are really easy! Sorry you don't get the beauty of snow, but at this point (snow day #5) I am ready for it to go!
If and when your students get back to school, no doubt they'll enjoy all these great snow books!
