Building a snowman is a fun sequencing activity filled with lots of great vocabulary and concepts for your preschooler and the whole family.  Start by telling your child the steps ahead of time and then again while building it.  Collect the items you will need and then show them to your child.

 

 Concepts
first, then, next
small, medium, big, little
cold, soft, hard, on, in
Actions
build, roll, dress, pick up, push
Nouns
snow, snowball, snowman, hat, scarf, branch, stick, eyes, nose, mouth, body, and items used to make the face (carrots, etc.)

 

Take pictures of the activity and retell later on with your children, using the vocabulary above.

 

HAVE FUN!!!!
