It is the little things that kids notice and remember. The finer details about how you wore your hair or your funny shoes. Something that may seem silly or no big deal to a teacher may mean the world to a child or even a parent. Everyone notices the little things. Even when they don’t they do. The whole experience is more fun. Someone may not be able to tell you why – they just know.

FUN MORNING ACTIVITY OR AFTER RECESS ACTIVITY!
Print out the SNOWMAN/WOMAN and cut them out. Hide them throughout the room. Prepare the kids the day before that they will have a fun activity for the morning! When they enter the room they will each be assigned a certain area of the room to find the gingerbread. Another option is to send them in groups of 5 and each one has to find 1-2 SNOWMAN/WOMAN (depending on how many you cut out).
At home activity, if you are sending out 1-3 kids in your home to search, cut out multiple SNOWMEN/WOMEN and have them find 3-5 each throughout the house! You could assign each child a room to search.
FUN BRAIN/VISION ACTIVITY!
A great exercise for the brain and vision is to hold the child facing outward into the room and then turn them in a circle 2-3xs and have them visually look for the SNOWMAN/WOMAN. The SNOWMAN/WOMAN needs to be placed throughout the room but not hidden. They have to point out and describe where they see the SNOWMAN/WOMAN. It is excellent for the vestibular.
