Setting Up Snowman Towers
Setting up this activity is super easy. If you are doing IT with babies or young toddlers, I would avoid using buttons or googley eyes. You can create the faces and buttons on the snowman using a sharpie.
If you are doing this with older toddlers or preschoolers have them create the snowman using buttons, construction paper and googley eyes. I let my toddlers attach the buttons to the make the face and the body using masking tape on the back of the buttons. I also grabbed a few hats and scarves to complete our snowmen! For the nose, I cut out a triangle from orange construction paper. I also gave them large googley eyes for the snowman face. Again they attached all of these items using masking tape.
Once they have created the faces and body of the snowmen, I asked them to build a snowman. At first my toddlers put the heads on the bottom and the body on top. I asked them to think about where their heads were on their body.
Is your head down by your legs or up on your shoulders?
They had a blast building and talking to their snowmen and snow-women. This was such a great idea and simple to clean up. It was also a great way to practice building towers a key problem solving activity.
Snowman Towers – Total Hit
This was a total hit with my toddlers. The best part of building the snowman towers was of course knocking them down again! What toddler doesn’t love that!
My twins are 2.5 year olds
