In Canada here, we’re still in the middle of winter, and what a great way to have fun with it than with these snowman toddler activities. We’ve had a light winter here compared to last winter, which was just atrocious. It’s the cold weather that keeps us coming back to these fun snowman activities. When we look at our windows and see snow, we just get the feeling that we should use that as creativity as well.
I really enjoy the fact that we don’t have to spend hours outside shoveling snow. My son asked for a snowblower, hubby replied that he already had two and they were our boys’ names. He has quite the humor, right?
I hope you enjoy these simple snowman activities. They’re always a huge hit with the kids! Simple for early learners and great for creativity and fine motor skills, too.
