I just can’t get enough of the cuteness of snowmen in wintertime. They are simply adorable! There are so many learning activities that you can do with Mr. Snowman. This Snowman Button Counting Activity is great for strengthening counting and fine motor skills in Pre-K and Kindergarten!
*Pair this with our Snow Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Snowman Button Counting Math Activity
Making this DIY counting activity is simple and inexpensive! You can use supplies that you already have on hand. Make sure to choose a thick paper and also consider laminating the activity pieces once assembled. This will make them durable and reusable for future use!
How to Make the Snowman Button Counting Activity
Using cardstock and the bottom of a small bowl, trace 2 large circles in the center of the paper.
Draw a top hat for your snowman.
Cut out the snowman body and top hat.
Use the top hat as a stencil for the remaining 9 top hats!
Draw a face on your snowman and decorate his 10 hats. Label the hats with numbers 1-10.
How to Use the Snowman Button Counting Activity
I would consider using this as a math center activity. Put Mr. Snowman, his 10 hats, and buttons in a center for children to practice counting and reading numbers.

The kids can pick a number top hat and then add that many buttons to their snowman!
They can pick another top hat and continue adding buttons until they have completed all the numbers.
Watching my little ones have fun with this snowman button activity was so rewarding. They couldn’t help but be happy and fully engaged. I just love finding fun ways to incorporate learning into our daily lives!
