We believe a strong foundation in literacy is the cornerstone of a child’s education. And it all starts with learning those ABCs! This alphabet matching activity will give your child the practice they need to differentiate between lower and uppercase letters, while also having a little winter fun.
How To Use These Free Snowman Printables
To create your snowman alphabet matching activity, go ahead and print the pages at the end of this post onto some cardstock. We love using cardstock because it’s much more durable than regular computer paper which makes it perfect for little ones.
Cut out the individual snowman hats and run them and the full snowman pages through a laminator. Alternatively, you could use some self-sealing laminating sheets, which are a great option if you’re short on time, or if you don’t own a thermal laminator.
By laminating the sheets, you’re adding yet another layer of protection that will allow your child to reuse this activity again and again! Plus, the printables are safe from small fingers that may accidentally cause rips and tears.
Once your sheets are laminated, take a moment to cut out the individual snowman hats. Don’t worry about being too precise during this part as the edges will be clear and virtually undetectable.
Now, go ahead and place one side of a velcro dot over each snowman’s head. Then place the corresponding dots on the back of the snowman hats.
Make sure you align both dots properly so the hat will be centered directly over the snowman when velcroed. This may seem complicated but it’s very simple!
For a video demonstration of how this can easily be done, be sure and check out this Ice Cream Alphabet Matching post.
In that video, Nadia explains how to make the most of your alphabet matching activity, and shows a great summertime alternative to this winter-themed one.
You are now finished assembling the printables and your snowman activity is ready to be used!

Using The Snowman Alphabet Printables
To use the printables, spread the snowmen and the top hats into two piles and have your child choose a snowman. You could go in order or keep it random.
This is a great opportunity to let them read and practice making the sound of that particular letter.
After they’ve identified what the letter is, have them look for the top hat with the matching lowercase letter. Once they’ve found it, let them stick the tophat on top of the snowman.
