We are starting a month-long winter activities unit this week. The first week of this unit we will be learning about snow. In keeping with that theme while also trying to help XGirl learn her colors, I created a free winter printable activity called Color the Snowman Buttons. Although XGirl is the one who really needs to work on learning colors, both XGirl and QBoy had fun doing this activity.
Note: For more fun ideas to help kids learn their colors, see my Teaching Colors to Kids page.
To do our Color the Snowman Buttons activity, I set out a tray of materials for each kids that included the following:
The goal of this activity is to add colored buttons to the snowman that match the snowman’s hat and scarf. I purposely set out three different materials they could use for color matching – crayons, stickers, and pom poms – to encourage my kids to engage with this activity for as long as possible. Both kids decided to start by making the snowman’s buttons with stickers.
QBoy then decided to try out the glue and pom poms.
And both kids eventually decided to use the crayons as well.
And when the kids were done adding the colored snowman buttons, I let them go crazy with the materials just to have a bit of fun. This is what they came up with. 🙂
