Snowman Dice Game

build a snowman dice game

The Snowman Dice Game is a great game that only requires basic and minimal supplies. Little Chef D had such a fun time playing this game! Little Chef H had a great time pretending to play with us as she drew lots of little circles on her paper. At least they were both having fun! Don’t miss the Snowman Dice Game printable at the bottom of this post!

The more we played The Snowman Dice Game more details Little Chef D wanted to add. In my key I did not put a flower in the hat like in the movie “Frosty the Snowman” so she fixed that for me! I might just start carrying around dice in my diaper bag to play this game at the doctors office, waiting to pick up other Little Chefs from activities, or at a restaurant! It is so easy to set up to play in just a minute.

We folded our paper three times to make 8 boxes. This step is not necessary, but it did help Little Chef D keep her drawings within the lines! In each box we drew three circles; small, medium, and large on top of each other like a snowman.

Little Chef D has asked to play this game everyday since. She only wants to go through the game two times, but it is really fun for her whether she wins or looses.  snowman games

I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!

    What a great project. You don’t really need all of those loads and loads of toys do you? Just some paper and crayons, and you’re good to go;)

    What a great way to pass time while waiting at the dr appts or in a restaurant. You could even do this with other types of characters depending on the time of the year. Thanks for sharing.

    Love this! I’m going to tell my boyfriend about this game. He babysits his nephew every afternoon & this is perfect! I’m stopping by from Voicebok doing some retweets. I hope you & the family have had a great Tuesday!
