Dec. 24 - 10 Little Snowmen

On Christmas Eve, we made 10 little snowmen. First, I traced snowmen on white cardstock from our snowman cookie cutter and cut them out with scissors. The whole time I traced and cut, I kept thinking how nice it would be to have a die-cut machine, or one of those cricut machines you see on the infomercials. Nevertheless I trudged onward, cutting out 10 little snowmen. Later that day, however, I looked in a yardsale bag from a while ago and found these bad boys that I had purchased for like 12 cents or something.
Oh well. Now I have MORE snowmen for other fun activities!
So with the 10 little snowmen that I so carefully cut out, I drew on some little faces, while LM colored the backs.

Then I wrote numbers 1 - 10 on them. We sang the song 10 little snowmen and had fun playing and singing together!

Our version of 10 Little Snowmen:

One little, Two little, Three little Snowmen.
Four little, Five little, Six little Snowmen.
Seven little, Eight little, Nine little Snowmen.
Ten little Snowmen on Christmas Eve!

I have made similiar snowmen and put 1 bitton on one 2 buttons on the next 3 on the third and on up to ten then I made hats for each one with the numbers 1-10 on them and had the children count the number of buttons on their snowman then place the coordinating number hat on the snowman. The kids loved this table game
