Snowman File Folder Game and Writing Practice (free printable)

It's winter and everybody loves snowmen!  Today, I have a fun pattern-based Snowman File Folder Game with a writing practice page for you...and, it's a free printable!  To make the file folder game, cut out the hats and laminate them.  Cut out the snowmen and tape them to the inside of a file folder.  Let your child match the hats to the scarves with the same pattern!  This can be an individual activity, but we did it as a group--those poor snowmen were so cold without their hats and everybody wanted to help!  Re-create the patterns with colored blocks or crayons!  We also followed up with some other icy activities!  If your child is learning to write, he may enjoy the tracing/writing page that is attached as well.

Nice, I like this idea. I have a lot of kids in my class that need writing practice and this looks like a fun way to get them to write. Also, I wish I had time to make more file folder games. This is a cute one.. maybe some day I will print it out. For now, I will pin it :) Thanks for linking up at Thinky Linky Thursday!

Thanks, Lori! If you don't worry about detailed cutting, this only takes a couple minutes to put together. Good luck with everything you have going on!

Thanks, Sierra! Your printables are wonderful--the post will go up in the morning!
