Snowman Counting

Why make learning to count a difficult and boring subject when you can actually have a ton of fun! This Snowman Button Counting activity is designed for toddlers through up until preschool age (depending on how many snowmen you’ll be using; the more snowmen the more counting involved!). This activity is fairly easy to set up, only requiring a short list of materials along with some basic drawing skills.

Once you have it all set up and buttons ready, the child has to count and place the correct number of buttons for each snowman, matching it with the number written next to it. This activity is great not only for learning numbers and number quantities but for exercising fine motor skills and cognitive skills.

For this activity you’ll need:

  • White cardstock
  • Colored permanent markers
  • Assorted buttons (small)

Snowman Counting


Using the colored permanent markers, draw 5 simple drawings of snowmen (don’t draw the buttons). Number each snowman 1-5.

TIP- you can use a large easel board paper and draw more than 5 snowmen to make this activity a bit more difficult!

Prepare the buttons next to the paper with snowmen (you can use a bowl to keep the buttons from going everywhere).
