Do you read the story “Snowmen At Night” by Carolyn Buehner?
It’s one of my students favorites, so I thought I’d make a quick, easy and fun little writing prompt craftivity for them to transition to after our story time.
So you can use this snowman for other stories, I’ve included non-titled patterns for versatility.
Little ones can simply make the snowman, while older students can add a writing prompt on the back. Be sure and check the PREVIEW for samples & ideas.
Completed projects make a sweet bulletin board, and prompts look terrific twirling from the ceiling. Simply punch a hole at the top & tie on a yarn loop.
There are 2 circle snowman patterns. One has a carrot nose the other an oval one.
There’s also a blank-faced snowman so children can draw their own, coloring with markers and crayons.
For fine-motor cutting practice, I’ve also included pattern pieces that you can run off on a variety of bright colors.
Children trim, arrange and glue them to their blue “night sky” circles to create a vibrant contrast.
I’ve also included a rectangular “color cut & glue” snowman option, with 2 writing prompt worksheets for the back.
For extra pizzazz and that finishing touch, my students absolutely love adding some snowflakes to the background using mini “porcupine balls” or Q-tips dipped in white paint.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun-filled day with some snowmen at night!
