Our five senses snowmen in preschool

in Five Senses Snowman, Winter Art

We have been exploring the Five Senses of Christmas along with other activities surrounding snow and snowmen so as a review of all of our senses, each of the children created a Five Senses Snowman…

I borrowed this idea from PreK—Preschool Ideas from Noey! Before making our snowman, we reviewed each of our senses in circle time…

I gathered bells, googly eyes, cinnamon, candy canes, and cut out snowman arms from sand paper.  As we passed around each item, we talked about how we can see with our eyes…

And we can feel the sandpaper arms with our hands…

And we can hear the bells with our ears, taste the candy cane with our mouth, and smell the cinnamon with our nose…

Then the children went to the table to make their own Five Senses Snowman…

Thank you Noey for this great idea. It fit perfectly with our Five Senses of Christmas unit we have been exploring the past two weeks…
