My favorite activity was the directed draw. Students were given a white sheet of paper with one mitten in the center. When the drawings were completed each student had created a snowman with a mitten for a heart just like in the book! Here are the steps along with a freebie of the paper we used for you to try it with your students. The results were fantastic!

We also played game of Snowman Mitten Mystery BINGO. Each snowman had a different style mitten for a heart. We used our document cameras to shine the BINGO cards we pulled up on the board for students to see if they had a match on their BINGO cards. Our kids always love a good old fashioned game of BINGO. This would be a great indoor recess activity, and your students could easily run the game themselves.
If your planning a winter party building a snowman snack out of powdered donuts similar to those you see below is always a hit! Pinterest is full of different takes on these easy to make snowman snacks. You would obviously only do this on special occasions in the classroom.
