This week’s book for the theme of snowflakes is The Little Snowplow by Lora Koehler. Although this is a longer book it’s great for sitting down and reading together especially if you have construction or truck mad kids. The little snowplow is teased by the big trucks in the story throughout the year for being small. But, like all good stories being small doesn’t make you any less mighty and in the end, the little snowplow saves the day.

Snowflake Themed Sensory Bin for Preschoolers

We are featuring a simple Winter Snowflake Sensory Bin this week.

I added in some snowflakes that my preschooler and I punched out from our craft supplies as well as some large dollar store snowflakes we had over Christmas.

Putting this together means that there is a simple sensory activity that you and your preschooler can use all week as everything in it can be reused.

Alphabet Activity for Preschoolers Inspired by The Little Snowplow

Like our counting activity from last week where we had a snowball fight, we are using the same idea this week after seeing the fun everyone has had with that over on Instagram and in our Facebook Group.

So we have an Alphabet Snowball fight for you and your little ones to enjoy.

Math Snowflake and Snow Themed Activity for Preschoolers

In the book, a lot of emphases is placed on size – a little snowplow and big trucks. Measuring is an important math skill that preschoolers need to learn as well as counting and number recognition.

This Snowball Shape Measuring Activity use the snowballs to decide which of the shapes is the biggest and which is the smallest.

Very easy to do and leads to lots of math language as well as hands-on learning.

Snowflake Snack for Preschoolers

Our cooking activity this week is a Tortilla Snowflake Snack.

They are so easy to make – our snowflake cookie cutters have the holes already cut so it’s even easier and the kids love them.

For a sweet treat instead of a savoury sprinkle with some cinnamon sugar before cooking.

Snow themed Art and Craft Activity for Preschoolers

We are combing art and science in our art and craft activity this week exploring colours and mixed whilst using a little science.

This will need a little time ahead to prep to freeze the “ice” for the activity but it’s a lot of fun to try this Fizzy Ice Activity.
