Snowman Sequencing Printables

Snowman Sequencing Printables

Winter is just about here for those of us on this side of the world!  It’s snowman season for many already and I wanted to share these new snowman sequencing printables with you all.  I used two different sets of graphics and offered each as a color printable or a black and white version for your child to color!

Snowman Sequencing

There’s also a recording sheet for each set, to be used as a place for your child to glue them on.

Winter Fun Q-Tip Painting Printables

Winter Fun Q-Tip Painting Printables

I have a new set of Winter Fun Q-Tip Painting Printables for you! This set has a simple sentence describing the picture, so you could staple them all together to make a book!  The focus letter comes from a word in the sentence. Lots of fun winter printables to keep little hands busy.

S is for snowman, A is for angel, B is for Ball, H is for hill, G is for gift, T is for tree, S is for skiing…lots of alphabet fun, painting fun, and winter fun all in one!Winter Fun Q-Tip Painting

WHY use Q-Tip Painting Printables?

The big answer is fine motor skills! You’ll notice how we focus on not only the tiny dots, but also using small items in painting or adding to the dots. All of this works on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills

The letter identification is a secondary bonus!

See ideas for using these here!

One thing I started years ago that has saved much sanity is our Christmas Activity Notebooks. I select printables for each child and load them up prior to December so we are less stressed and have some fun activities!  As the kids get older, I have less for them, a majority is for the younger ages.

Christmas Activity Notebooks


Our site has loads of free Christmas printables to load activity notebooks with!  Our Q-Tip Painting printables are some of our most popular.  We have a Christmas Fun set and a Nativity set.

One of our favorite things to do during the month of December is our Christmas Sensory Bin.  We have a surprise a day and play lots of fun games with our bin!

Before I go any further, let me share this post. More is not better.  Make your December learning choices wisely and don’t do too much.  Your smile will be what they remember.  Stress is not good. Especially stress over the fun activities you planned.

Mommy's Attitude matters more than the Activities


Another way I stay less stressed is by organizing our Advent activities in advance.  I use a paper bag method and it works well for us.  Read more about it here.

Organize Advent Activities in Advance


Here’s a look at what we did last year, which has links to all of the resources we used.
