Letter formation is a skill that needs a lot of practice and holding a pencil to paper is not always the best way to go. After creating snow using our Insta-snow kit, we repurposed the fluffy stuff for a fun handwriting activity by writing letters in the snow.
I grabbed an old Melissa and Doug box, placed our alphabet cards and poured some snow into the large section of the box. Now, it was time to practice writing our letters. You can have your learners write their numbers, shapes, sight words or only capital or lowercase at a time, too. There are so many skills your learners can practice with this one activity.
To keep the snow from evaporating, I placed the snow in a baggie when it was not being used. This kept it ready for more sensory handwriting practice when we needed it.
