Winter activities

We did several activities this week with our theme of winter, snow, and snowmen. Here is a VERY simple snowflake matching game that I made by placing two sheets of paper together to get duplicate snowflakes. This kind of activity is easy for Diego now so instead of just matching the snowflakes we talked about the similarities and differences between the snowflakes. I was surprised when he asked to do it several times.

After making the snowflakes, Diego wanted to make his own snowflakes. He learned how to make them on Christmas Eve when we decided to decorate to celebrate our first snow.
Another day we worked on bigger and smaller by putting "snowballs" in order of size. Diego is still wearing his Three Kings Day crown. :)


  1. I like those pretty snowflakes - they are so good for visual discrimination activities. It looks like Diego had a lot of fun with them.

  2. WOW! I found the snowflakes matching kind of hard! GO DIEGO GO!!! (and please leave Dora out of this...haha)

  3. how about three snowflakes with two that are the same and one different?

  4. I'm seeing so many fun winter ideas, and I'm seeing buds on my trees in my back yard. It's cracking me up.
    I think I might do a winter in July unit or something with the kids to have a fun "cold" unit.
