Snowman shape matching freebie

Brr! It sure is getting colder and colder here. We've even had freezing temperatures! Of course, there is no snow in sight yet. It makes me so nostalgic for the beautiful, white Christmas' I had loved so much in Michigan. The Netherlands is a wonderful place to live, but the weather really isn't all that great. 

Inspired by the snow I miss so much, I have been so busy making winter and snowman themed printables. Maybe that will inspire some real snow and Y can make a real snowman. In the meantime, we'll be enjoying our printable snowman. Well, and perhaps we'll make some fake snow soon!

Play dough is a wonderful toy! Children love to explore with it, play, and create. Aside from being so much fun, there are so many wonderful benefits to including play dough activities and invitations in your children's play (or school) activities.

Christmas Color Cards for Toddlers

We are definitely in the holiday spirit around here! Yesterday, we had a lovely Sinterklaas celebration (St Nicholas Day). I always know it's December and the holiday season when all of the St Nicholas Day festivities begin. It's always afterwards that we set up a Christmas tree, and have a family oriented Christmas, followed by a large New Year celebration. 

Between all of our cultures and backgrounds, there are so many holidays for us to celebrate in the month of December - it's a fun and hectic time of year! 

We're still enjoying our Christmas themed works! I'm excited to be sharing freebies and new Tot Labs products for you guys from now until Christmas! Today, I am sharing another printable for tots - we have some fun Christmas tree color works!

Toddler Christmas Shape Matching Printables

We love the holiday season! Today, I am sharing a brand new Christmas freebie, specifically for toddlers practicing their shapes! We loved works like this when Y was two, but now I am excited to create these activities for my little niece who is turning two in a less than two weeks! For you guys, of course, that means, you can access the printables to practice some fun holiday themed shape matching, too.

Snowman fractions printables

I'm slowly working on finishing up our winter themed activities! I'm so excited to get those up on here, too! There's a bunch of fun preschool ones that you'll be able to use to get your shelves ready for the winter season. Because we all have so much free time during the holidays, right? Kidding aside, I love creating themed works during this time of year. 

Lately, I have been trying to create printables and activities for different age groups. Since starting to work at Y's school, I have really been inspired to design materials for older children. Of course, since Baby Natasha's birth (and pregnancy), I'm also so excited to make materials for babies and am anticipating the toddler years. 

To combine both my love of all things holiday, winter themed, and season with my new inspiration, today I am sharing our Snowman Fraction cards! You can use these for a fun way to teach your little ones about fractions! These are absolutely perfect for hands on winter themed math activities!
