Once Upon a Book ~ Katy and the Big Snow


Katy and the Big Snow

by Virginia Lee Burton


Summary: Katy and the Big Snow is a charming story of a red crawler tractor named Katy who was very strong and could do many things including dig an entire city out from under a huge snow storm!

Bible Verse

"Be strong. therefore, and let not your hands be weak and slack, for your work shall be rewarded." 2 Chronicles 15:7


We downloaded our Katy and the Big Snow lapbook free from Homeschool Share! It includes a counting activity, community helper & buildings and vehicle cards. A “what is snow?” and “what is a blizzard?” mini-books and a book of different street signs. There are actually lots more you can download, we just chose these to keep it simple.


Sensory Tub

For fun, we brought in tubs of snow to play with, we added in some of our play cars and such to keep up with the transportation theme!


Snowball Snack

These are an easy no-bake snowball snack to go with our theme.


Of course my Snowman Preschool printables went with our snowy book so we brought some of those out as well:




Salt City Craft: This craft was really fun and easy! Simply draw a map of your city using the glue then sprinkle salt along the glue and shake off to reveal your snowy path! You can draw in buildings after the salt is dry if you like.


  • Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Salt
  • Tray or cookie sheet to work on


Beaded Snowflake craft: This is super easy and fun, you can click here to see instructions on making these!
