You Will Need:
Snow, sticks, items to make a face (eyes, nose, mouth), hat, and gloves
Before heading outside, make sure you and your child are dressed appropriately for the weather (jacket, boots, hat, gloves, etc.). Work with your child to make a snowman. Say things like, “Where do you think all this snow came from?”; “What does our snowman need?”; “Is it a boy or a girl?”; “What can we use to make his eyes?”; “Does he need a hat?”; “Do we need a different hat for a boy?”; “Do we have enough snow to make a snowman as tall as you…or as tall as me? Let’s see!”; “Do we want to name him?”
Talk about how cold you are. Check your child’s fingers frequently to be sure they are not too cold. Let your child make as many choices as possible in designing the snowman.
