Preschool Basics: "Snowy" Day Number Formation

One more snow-themed activity before we move onto Valentine's Day activities!  

Here's a quick tip:  Whenever we do number activities, I always use these Number Rhymes to help the girls remember what each number looks like and how it is formed.

  • Paper
  • Marker
  • Cotton balls

1)  Write the numbers 1-10 on sheets of paper. 

2)  Outline the number with cotton balls.

You can either put the cotton balls and sheets of paper in a plastic bag and reuse them again (as a very simple learning bag), use the cotton balls for a "snowball" hunt, glue them on the number, or use them for another art project!

If you have an older PreK-2nd grade student, challenge them to form the numbers without a written guide.
