I saw a cute little snow man mentioned on a teacher’s site, and I thought it would be perfect to use in therapy. The original source of the picture was from here, but I have made my own to cut out, color, and dress your snowman.
There is a plain white picture to color and then cut out, and I made one in color in case you want to work on just the cutting and putting the snow man together. This activity would lend itself well to printing out on magnet paper so that you can dress the snow man in his different outfits over and over again. Here are the pdfs for the snow man template. I also have the pdf for the base paper that I use for most of my cutting projects so that the kids have lines to write on at the side.
I made a snow man last year for cutting, but he did not have extra clothes, and is was much more basic shape cutting. You can find the other snow man here. I also have cutting templates for a tree and a ginger bread man from last year. I really liked doing the torn paper christmas trees . Also done is a snowman clothespin game that you can play. Go check them out.
