Kid's Co-Op: Snowmen Activities + Snacks

While we rarely get snow here in Southern California in the Winter and have not yet ventured to the closest snow in the area yet, Wild Thing and Caterpillar still love snowmen and the idea/concept of snow, and their two favorite Winter books: Snowmen at Night and Snow Sounds inspired us to get creative. Our creativity has included
Snow-Inspired Sensory Play and Spool Snowmen, which I featured in our Snow Baby Play post and some snowmen snacks (which are much more sugar intensive than what I usually give them). We are sharing those snacks here along with our favorite Snowmen activities from the Weekly Kid's Co-Op last week.

Food items for our snowmen sledding scene inspired by Snowmen at Night.

Above you can see our simple snowmen donuts (with a clementine smile), our sledding snowmen and a great snowman breakfast from JDaniel4sMom from the Co-Op last week. Plus, here are some creative snowmen activities that also caught my eye last week:

Counting Snowmen from Housing a Forest, Roll a Monster Snowman from Chicken Babies and Five Ways to Make a Snowman from The Stepford Wife.  

I shared this at Tuesday Tots

What snowy (or other) creative play or snack time have you had lately? Please link up and share!


  1. Fantastic snowmen and look delicious as well.

    Thank you for linking up to Tuesday Tots last week and letting you know that I will be featuring this over on Rainy Day Mum this week.
