Do you want to Build a Snowman

There are lots of ways you can build a snowman without even having to step outdoors.

Of course you could dress up as a snowman – if you don’t have a costume maybe just put on white clothes with a hat and scarf.

We had a bit of a look and find activity with circles. I asked the children to look for things that were circular – and different sizes.

Then I asked them to sort them into big, medium and small (this proved too much with the youngest so we changed it to just big and small).

Then they drew around some of the circular things they found to make a snowman body and head.

Then taped them together, and drew faces, scarves on them.

Then of course there were the tasty snowmen

I put the ingredients into little jars

2 marshmallows each, some marzipan, black ready roll icing, strawberry laces, chocolate button, and  an orange lace.

Then they attached the ingredients with icing-sugar.
