activities, crafts, and printables to go along with The Snowy Day

The Snowy Day by Ezra Keats (aff link) was such a fun book to read (and re-read) with our children. The illustrations are so unique (and fun to imitate) and there are many activities that go-along with the book to encourage learning, aside from the hands-on ones: story sequencing, finding shapes, learning about the weather, and much more!

This is a book that has earned a permanent spot on our bookshelves – for visiting friends and someday grandkids! I just can’t bring myself to pull it off and pack it away!

Here is a collection of 35 activities, crafts, science projects, and printables to go along with your reading of The Snowy Day. If you have a link you love, please let me know so I can add it below as well!
