Children can work on this puppet craft using various shapes that you might include in your math lessons.
Children learning about shapes for the first time would benefit from practicing this.
Having the children locate the shape as you show them how to make the puppets is another entertaining way to begin this shapes recognition exercise.
You may also have the children draw a snowman using the shapes you’re about to go through.
Or, as an alternative, give the kids some foam shapes or shapes that have been cut out so they may make a snowman by hand.
3. Preschool Winter Crafts
Your winter crafts will be a hit if you include this printable snowman paper bag puppet template.
Decorating our home and classrooms with the crafts that our kids have made is always a great deal of fun.
This gave us the idea to incorporate the snowman puppet into your classroom or home’s winter decorations.
To make your winter more memorable, add this puppet craft to your list of preschool winter crafts.
Allow the kids to display or hang their snowman puppet crafts wherever they’d like once they’re finished.
They can combine it to create a banner of a snowman, hang it on the wall, and more.
4. Do You Want to Build a Snowman Song
What a wonderful time to sing “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” than while making snowman paper bag puppets?
We all know how much kids adore the movie Frozen and, of course, the snowman who played an iconic role, Olaf.
As they make their snowman puppets, it would be a great time to have the kids sing this well-known song.
You could also stage a puppet show using this song and the kids’ snowman paper bag puppets as props.
Making more snowman puppets and singing this song with the kids would be something they would look forward to doing in the winter.
We are glad to have given you all of these ideas so you can have a lovely winter!
I hope all of these ideas will be included into your winter activities at home and at school.
These activities are sure to keep the kids occupied and productive throughout their winter break.
