Step 3: Stick them on the lolly sticks
Using blue tac stick the snowman heads to the top of your lolly sticks.
Step 4: Your snowmen are all ready to play
Ask your child to read the number on the snowman’s hat and place the matching amount of buttons on the stick.
They could use blue tac to stick them down or just place them on top of the stick. Either way your child can add or remove buttons to play the game again and again.
Step 5: Switch the game around
You can also play this game the other way round.
Keep the snowman heads off of the sticks. Add buttons on the sticks with blue tac in different quantities from 1-10.
Ask your child to count the buttons and match the correct snowman head to the stick.
Enjoy this fun snowman counting stick activity!
