What’s Included:

  • 26 Capital Letter Snowman Cards

What Else Is Needed:

  • White Card Stock 
  • Scissors
  • Craft Sticks
  • Mini Craft Sticks
  • Laminator
  • Laminating Pouches

Letter Building Activity

To prepare this letter activity for your kids, fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

After receiving the email with the printables, download and print the cards that you want to use on white card stock. 

Next, cut the cards apart. (There are two per page.) You may want to also laminate the cards so your children can use this resource.

For this activity, your kids will need to use both the full-size and mini craft sticks. You can order either the colored or natural mini ones from Amazon or make your own.

To make your own set of mini craft sticks, cut the full-size ones in half. You will then want to sand the cut edge so it isn’t sharp or rough for your children.

You can store the cards and craft sticks in a resealable bag or box for a literacy activity that is easy to set up or take on the go. 

How To Use The Snowman Building Letters Activity:

For this alphabet activity, your pre-readers will pick a card and identify the capital letter on it.

Letter Formation Activity

Next, they will use the full-size and mini craft sticks to build the letter. 

If your children are just starting to learn the ABC’s, have them start with just a few cards. You can then add more as they learn the letters.

Learning the ABC's This winter-themed Snowman Building Letters Activity is a fun, hands-on way for your preschoolers to work on letter recognition and formation!
