Preschoolers can learn the letter S with fun letter alphabet letter craft and activities. Download the free template
Winter has arrived and just dropped the most snow we have seen in years on our house. I am not a fan of snow because I hate being cold, but my kids love it and whenever I release them into the great outdoors they head straight into a snow-dive. In honor of their love of snow we made a letter S is for Snow craft, put together an easy snowflake sensory bin, and played some snowball math. Come check out all our Winter Activities and grab our free printable letter S template.
S is for Snow Activities
Suggested Book: The Snowman by Raymond Briggs a wonderful winter picture book that children can narrate with their imagination and creativity.
Snowflake Sensory Play
Find & Count Winter Activity
Counting Mats (Free download)
Have child find snowflakes in the “snow” and place them on their counting mat or on the letter S.
Little Tiger (age 5) found it easiest to make a pile of snowflakes and then place them on the mat while counting.
Little Dragon (age 2) found it easiest to place each snowflake on the mat as he found them. He would name the number he was putting it on, but did not put them on in sequential order (which is totally okay).
They both loved how fluffy the cotton balls felt. Eventually we ended up having a cotton ball snowball fight which was awesome and not cold! When we were done we picked up all the cotton balls and put them back in the bag to use again later.
