I’m not a fan of cold weather (notice that I’m living in San Diego!), but I do love snowman activities that are warm and cozy. Free snowman printables with hands-on activities are some of my favorite ways to enjoy snowmen!
Here, I’m sharing the links to free snowman printables along with activities for preschoolers through 1st graders (and sometimes older). To keep my printable list manageable, I don’t share coloring pages unless a page has a specific educational purpose related to snowmen.

Free Snowman Printables and Activities
Free Printable: Snowman Cutting Strip Practice from Preschool Snowman Pack by Royal Baloo
This was a super-easy activity to prepare. I just printed out the printable on cardstock (which is easier for young children to cut than paper). For interest, I added a gift box for the cut pieces of paper.
Snowman Button Counting and Practical Life Activity
Free Printable: Snowman Button Counting Mats by Perfectly Preschool at Teachers Notebook
I used a Multicraft tray, craft gems for buttons, and a toast tong for an added practical life activity. I only used 1-5 (with the exact number of “buttons”) for this activity, although there are snowman mats for 1-10 if you use small enough “buttons.”
Number Snowman Hide & Seek
Free Printable: Numbers 1-10 Snowman Hide & Seek by Maureen Prezioso at Teachers Pay Teachers
This is a cute way to help children understand the different ways to represent each number.
I used a Montessori Services rug for the layout. You could simply have the child search for all the snowmen that represent the same number.
Free Printable: Snowmen Beginning Sound Sort from Snowman Literacy Centers by Lorie Duggins at Teachers Pay Teachers
Snow scenes and snowmen are available for s, t, p, and r. There are 4 snowmen for each letter sound, although you could use 2, 3, or 4 sets.
The child simply sorts the snowmen and adds them to the correct snow scene. You can find resources on how to introduce Montessori phonics in my DIY beginning Montessori phonics post.
Build a Snowman CVC Words
Free Printable: Build a Snowman CVC Words from Let It Snow! Winter Mini Unit by Chevron and Centers at Teachers Pay Teachers
This is a fun extension to the Montessori movable alphabet. The letters aren’t one color for vowels and another for consonants, although most children who can spell the words won’t have a problem with that.
Free Printable: Compound Words Snowman by Anna Navarre at Teachers Pay Teachers
This activity is for advanced preschoolers through 1st graders … a creative way to reinforce the idea of compound words.
Free Snowman Printables for Preschoolers-First Graders (some printables for up to grade 3)
The snowman color printables I used are no longer available, but Gift of Curiosity has free snowman colors with 8 colors. You can get free Spanish color cards from Homeschool Creations. Get preparation and presentation ideas in my “Montessori-Inspired Snowman Color Activities Using Free Printables.”
The free printable I used for my snowman letter matching is no longer available, but you could make a snowman letter matching activity with Snowman ABC Match Up from CreatedByMarloJ at Teachers Pay Teachers or the Uppercase/Lowercase Snowman Letter Matching by Stacie McDade at Teachers Pay Teachers. Get preparation and presentation ideas in my “Montessori-Inspired Snowman Letter Activities Using Free Printables.”
