Whew! Is it just me or did Christmas really come and go that quickly?
Well, I say quickly now, but it sure was an exhausting couple of days. Filled with more fun, food, and laughter than I ever could have imagined and it was perfect.
Now that it’s over though, we’re starting to get back into our normal routine and right now, that includes lots of winter activities! Especially those that include snowmen 🙂
They’re just adorable and honestly, who doesn’t love snowmen?!
Now take those snowmen, turn them into puppets and use them with a song like 5 Little Snowmen, and it gets even better!
Songs and quick little finger plays like this one are such a fun way to either introduce new concepts or review ones that you’ve already started working on in a new way.
This one in particular not only works on simple counting but introduces the concept of subtraction as well.
Not to mention that creating them is super simple!
We printed ours off on card stock so they wouldn’t fall over or bend too easily, cut them out, and glued them on to jumbo, colored craft sticks to make them a little bit more fun.
Once they’re dry, all you’ve got left to do is sing!
If you’ve already got your own version of the song, go ahead and use it 🙂 But if not, we’ve included our as part of the printable as well.
Ours happens to include the sun melting the snowmen away, so we use that opportunity to talk about subtraction and “taking away” from a group of objects.
However you use them, I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
