Roll a Snowman- A game for the whole Family!

This snowman dice game can’t get any easier to prepare and play! It’s great for kids and adults of all ages- my young kids love it, but you could also have your teenage children play it to see who gets out of doing the dishes after dinner- get creative!

You will need:

-A die

-A set of snowman pieces for each player. I made the following printable, you can use it if you’d like!

Object of the Game:

Be the first person to collect all the pieces of your snowman.

Set Up:

Print the snowman printable & cut it out. Then place all the pieces in the center of the table and get ready to roll. The youngest person will start and play continues clockwise.

How to Play:

1. Roll the die and collect the piece of snowman for the number you roll:

6- Body

5- Head

4- Hat

3- Scarf

2- Arms

1- Nose

If you roll a number for a part you already have, play passes to the next player.

Variations:

– Make it more difficult by requiring each player to roll a 6 to get a body before they can collect any pieces. And then require that each player rolls a 5 for a head before they can collect a nose, scarf and hat.

– If you don’t want to print and cut out the above printable, just give each player a pencil and paper and have them draw the snowman parts as they roll the various numbers.

I hope you all have fun with your family this holiday season!

  7. Such a cute idea, and I’m so glad you shared it! I use the game as a basis for our preschool snack this week. Instead of using the paper cut out snowman, we used powdered donuts, pretzels, candy corn and such to build our snowmen. It was a perfect activity for 6 little ones learning about the letter S. Thank you!

    I love the idea of rolling for the snowman, I would like to adapt your idea for my music classes. Instead of rolling a die with numbers, I’d like for them to roll a die with note values to complete the snowman. I will only be using this for educational purposes and will give you full credit and link back to your blog post. I create my lessons in SMART Notebook for the IWB SMART Board and once I create the lesson, I’d like to post the lesson on my blog. The children will come to the SMARTBoard to roll the note value and complete the snowman at the SMARTBoard.

    sincerely,
    Cherie Herring
