Check out this fun winter activity for kids – perfect for working on visual skills, fine motor skills, and gross motor skills!
Kids love mixing and pretending to make potions and soups of all kinds! They also love the challenge of following a recipe!
We thought it would be fun to make a wintery twist on this activity with some recipe cards for making Snowman Soup! If you like these, check out our Magic Potion Sensory and Fine Motor Activity Pack!
What You’ll Need:
Collect the following ingredients and place them in individual bowls for easy retrieving.
- Craft sticks (snowman’s arms)
- Marshmallows or cotton balls (snowballs)
- Orange triangles -craft foam, felt, or paper (carrot noses)
- Small mitten shapes cut from felt
- Ribbon cut into 3″ pieces (scarves)
- Small black hats (can be purchased at a craft store or use another small black object like Legos)
- Black pompoms or felt circles (pieces of coal)
- Empty plastic container with a lid
- Snowman Soup Recipe Cards (scroll down and fill out the form to get the free download)
What to do:
Print the snowman soup winter activity recipe cards (scroll down and fill out the form to get them delivered right to your inbox), cut them out and laminate them if desired.
Place the recipe cards at one end of the room and have kids complete locomotor skills to deliver each ingredient of their recipe to the container or grab some tongs or tweezers to increase the fine motor challenge.
Throw all of the ingredients into one big sensory bin and have kids dig for each item that they need for their soup to be complete. With 8 different recipes to choose from, this activity is sure to keep kids busy and happy for a while!
Don’t forget to read the directions for how to mix up the soup so kids can serve it to you or a friend! Snowman soup is definitely best served cold as a gazpacho! :) The directions include movements to target direction-following, balance, jumping, galloping, and skipping.
