Perfect for the winter season, Jennifer of Ramblings of a Crazy Woman put together a fabulous snowman matching game that will help your kiddos build numeral recognition and strengthen counting skills. To assemble the file folder game...

  1. Find a black and white clip art snowman online. There's a cute snowman paper doll over at Danielle's Place, complete with top hat and knit cap cutouts. Additionally, the snowman doesn't have any buttons so you can draw as many as needed.
