This fun winter math activity is an active way to have some pretend snowy fun indoors! Practice counting while developing large motor skills!
This game was so much fun for Evan! He was practicing counting and he had no idea. He also got a lot of exercise. He always learns and retains more when I add a movement component to an activity so this was perfect for him.
Couch cushions or pillows
Large white sheet
Foam or paper snowflakes
1. Make a big pile of cushions in the middle of the floor. Add a white sheet over top.
2. Spread the snowflakes all over the floor about 5-10 feet away from the mountain.
Instruct your child to roll the dice and count up the dots. To work on larger numbers, use the pair of dice. To work on smaller numbers, use one die.
Once they have the number, they will run and climb over the “snowy mountain” to get to the snowflakes on the other side. They will collect the number of snowflakes that corresponds to the number shown on the dice. Then they will run them back over the mountain and place them on the other side. Continue this process until all the snowflakes are collected.
We plan to do this activity again because it was so much fun and a really great learning opportunity at the same time!
