# Save The Snowman: Winter Learning Game

This post may contain affiliate links.

Winter is settling in over here. We got our first snow this week, so I figured it was time for some winter learning games. I created this Save the Snowman Winter learning game for my kids. Â They thought it was pretty fun! Plus, it is totally adaptable for different themes and seasons. (I was originally going to do this for Thanksgiving with a turkey, but just did get it done in time!) Â (This post is sponsored by Elmer’s. I was given free product and was compensated for my time in writing it.)Â

## How to Make TheÂ Snowman Winter Learning Game

Supplies Needed:
Disposable Cup
Colored Construction Paper
Buttons for Eyes
Small piece of fabric
Paper Straws
Elmer’s GlueÂ Spots
Bowl
Markers

To make the game, we first decorated our cup to look like a snowman. I love these Elmer’s glue spots because they make the whole process so simple! You just peel and stick! I even used it for the scarf.

This is where you can make different variations for holidays and seasons! Â You could do a Thanksgiving Turkey, a Reindeer, a Penguin, a Dog, or anything really! Â If you don’t want the extra step, leave the cup plain. The decorating part is the hardest part!

Next, decide how you are using the game. We did it with some sight words and also some multiplication problems. You could put alphabet letters, vocabulary words, or anything you need practice with. Write those things on the straws.

(Don’t judge my handwriting! Â It is hard to write on straws! ðŸ˜‰ )

To play Save the Snowman, lay the straws across the bowl and balance the snowman on top.

Pull out the straws one at a time and take out as many as you can before the snowman falls. Â As you pull out the straws, they read the words on them, or if you use it as a math game, write math problems they need to solve. Challenge each other to see how many you can pull out before it falls!

Save the SnowmanÂ is a great hands-on winter learning game that all the kids will love!
