Simply Made ~ Winter Themed Activities

Looking for some fun winter themed activities/tools for your little one? Take a peek at some of these great ideas from mommy bloggers.

Disappearing Snowman Cookies from Our Crafts ~N~ Things: This activity is easy to make and there is even a cute little finger play to use along with it!

Four cookie snowmen sitting on a tray. (Hold up 4 fingers.)
Four cookie snowmen, smiling all day. (Point to smiling mouth.)
Along came a little child, rubbing his tummy. (Rub tummy.)
One cookie disappeared. Yum, yum, yummy! (Hold up 1 finger then lick lips.)

[Repeat the rhyme replacing with numbers three, two and one.]
