## Snowman Counting Activity

Make learning fun with toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners by incorporating a fun winter theme during December, January, and February. This snowman counting activity is a great for practicing counting in a visual way. We like to use this winter activity as a snowman math activity for young kids. Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – you will love this cute counting butons on a snowman idea.

Supplies:
• A tray like this or a tray with 3 loose small cups/bowls
• Buttons
• Black felt
• Black and orange marker
• White marker or Tipex pen

## Snowman Counting

Simply add the cotton wool to the tray in the shape of a snowman. Draw the face using the markers. Cut some hats(I cut 10) from the felt and number them(I used a Tipex pen for this).

## Snowman activity for preschoolers

Ready to play and learn? Picking up the buttons work on fine motor skills. Placing the buttons onto the right spot works on hand eye coordination. Your child will need to be able to recognize numbers and count it out for this activity. For younger children, only work with number 1-3 or use dots rather than the written number. Increase the number of hats(and numbers) as your child develops.

## Snowman counting game

Let your child choose a hat(or, you could add a dice to the game and roll it to determine what number hat to take), count out how many buttons you need according to the number on the hat, and add it to the snowman.

After your older child added lots of buttons, you can reverse the game and take away the next hat you choose. Working on subtraction too.

Extend the activity more by only adding blue buttons, then red buttons etc. This way, you work on visual discrimination skills(sorting) too!
