Mashed Potato Snowman Dinner

We had a make your own mashed potato snowman. It was so much fun! I scooped out the mashed potato balls on their plates. Then the kids got to decorate the snowman using foods I had on the table. Here are some of our creations – they tasted pretty yummy too! (It was a great way to get kids to load up on fun, healthy veggies!)

Snowman Marshmallow Activity

I loaded a bin with mini marshmallows & some big ones too. I included toothpicks (under supervision only) to make snowmen and snowflakes; the kids then used edible food markers to paint on their faces & accessories! I even included a snow plow truck to move the “snow” around! Goofy decided to make ‘buildings’ instead.  Then they got to eat some of their creations!

Indoor “Snow” Winter Sensory Activity for Kids

It’s SNOWING!! We set up a scene using plastic characters & animals we had around (making sure they were washable!). Then I let them go crazy with shaving cream to make it ‘snow’ on them! They had so much fun squishing & giggling!! An added bonus is all our characters are nice & clean now!! (see more about this activity here)

Snowman Math Visualization Activity

This was a very simple, yet effective, preschool math activity. We made snowman using bingo markers and made each snowman one ball taller going from snowman 1-10 balls. They thought the super tall snowmen were so silly! Snowman Math for Preschoolers

Learning about Emotions with Snowmen

We used white paper plates to make our emotional snowmen. We talked about emotions & then made snowmen that represented different emotions. We talked about how we all get mad sometime, the important thing is to not sin in our anger as the Bible tells us in Ephesians 4:26.

Snowman Breakfast for Kids

We made two different snowman breakfasts during our Snowman week. First we made donut snowman and then we made a snowman out of eggs & cottage cheese. They were both a huge hit!

Snowman Dessert for Kids

I cam eup with the idea to make Snowman Smores. I put them on a cookie sheet for about 5 minutes at 400 F. After they came out I plopped an orange M&M sideways for the nose & 2 black M&M eyes. They were perfectly goey & delicious!! My hubby & I topped it with another graham cracker & ate it as a smore!!

Snowman Science Exploration for Kids

I froze some of their preschool figures in ice blocks. We then experimented with what made ice (or snow) melt. I really liked the book Sneezy the Snowman by Marueen Wright to go with this lesson. The book teaches kids several ways that snow melts in the context of a fun story.

As far as our snowman science experiment, I let the kids try whatever came to mind: blowing, sprinkles, ketchup, crushed red pepper, etc. We discovered that hot (in the form of cocoa, water, fire, room temp, microwave, etc) all worked. We also discovered that salt also melts ice and correlated to to why they put salt on our icy roads in the winter. It was a lot of Science fun!
