Snowman Matching

Just for fun, we made our own snowman matching game (and because I got a new Silhouette Cameo for Christmas and wanted to use it).

I started each boy with 2 plain white snowman cutouts.  The boys decorated them with stickers, stamps, and colored pencils, making sure that whatever they did on one, they also did on the other so they would match.

I tried to help Nathan do matching ones too, but it's hard to always match scribbles. I think we did a pretty good job though.

We decorated 18 snowmen total, and then we played a memory matching game with them.  I decided also to laminate them in hopes that they will last a while.  The boys had fun with this simple activity.  They've come up with names for all the different snowmen, and say them while we are playing. Things like "Oh, I found rock star and soccer J!" and "I don't remember where the other Double Dime is!"  It makes me smile.
