Snowman Collage Sense of Touch

With all the snow that has been falling everywhere, but here we’ve been having a little bit of snowman jealousy lately. We do have a few inches on the ground, but it’s not great for snowmen, so we decided to make some inside. My preschooler made a sense of touch snowman collage to go with her favorite book (for now) “That’s Not My Snowman“. There is a whole series of “That’s Not My…” books and Shiloh loves them all, but right now she’s got snow on the brain.

This sense of touch snowman collage was so much fun for my preschooler to create. She loved feeling all the different sensory craft materials.

Shiloh’s biggest sentence right now is “I weddy go ouside pway no.” (Translation: I’m ready to go outside and play in the snow.”) She sits at our window begging for her sisters to take her outside to play. They oblige for a little bit each day, but they have to drag her back inside because she doesn’t feel the cold like she should.This sense of touch snowman collage was so much fun for my preschooler to create.

Materials we used for our Sense of Touch Snowman Collage:

Blue and White Card stock 

Twigs

Goggly Eyes

Coffee Filters

Pillow stuffing

Cotton Balls

Buttons

Glue

Large Hole Punches

Because Shiloh is not able to manipulate scissors to cut a specific shape yet, I did use our large circle punches to cut the snowmen pieces. We have 2.5″, 2″ and 1.5″ circle cutters, so I cut a few of each size.

I also cut some coffee filters into strips to give a wavy texture. This sense of touch snowman collage was so much fun for my preschooler to create. She loved feeling all the different sensory craft materials.

Shiloh was really showing off her skills for this activity. She surprised me because she immediately recognized the different sizes of the circles and put them in order to create a snowman. She even did a baby snowman with two circles.

In the “That’s Not My…” series every book goes through various adjectives for the sense of touch or sight to show that the thing pictured is not the right one. The kids can touch and experience the word that is being used. This is especially great for special needs kids like my daughter who only understand things that they can experience.

  1. How fun! Thank you for the idea. I like that it also combines the sensory aspect. I’ll have to do this with my kiddos this week. We still have some snow around.
