HOW TO MAKE THE BUILD A SNOWMAN GAME
Find a small cardboard cube or make one by cutting 6 square cardboard pieces and taping them into a cube shape.
Using markers or crayons draw a snowman body part on each side of the box. Label each picture with the corresponding word. My cube included sticks (arms), carrot (nose), circle (head), two circles (body), coal circles (face) and a hat.
Draw pictures of the snowman parts on a white piece of paper. Cut out each part. Make enough parts for each player to have a complete set. The smaller you make the body parts the more challenging to fine motor skills.
