Come to Play, Big White Snowfriend

Come to Play, Big White Snowfriend!
Inspired by Ed Emberly’s Go Away, Big Green Monster
Adapted by Anne Clark

Place all of the magnetboard pieces below in order, starting at the bottom and working your way up (See picture) If necessary, omit some to fit your space better. J
Big white Snowfriend has 3 big belly buttons,
1 soft green scarf,
1 snazzy red bow tie,

1 goofy black smile,
1 crunchy orange carrot nose,

2 rosy pink cheeks,
2 coal black eyes,
And 1 warm wool hat.

Big White Snowfriend has come to play! Yay!
Pause and ask the kids what kind of things would be fun to play with a snowfriend. Possible suggestions: sledding, skiing, ice-skating, snowball fights, etc. After a few, continue…

Oh no!  all the snow is melting, so…
Goodbye, warm wool hat, etc.
(say goodbye to all of the pieces in the reverse order that they were placed, starting with the hat at the top  and ending with the buttons on the bottom)

And please come back next winter! See you then, old friend!


  1. Oh Anne, I love this! I was feeling bummed about probably not getting to do my collaborative build a snowman flannel with the kiddos anymore since my new library has like 100 people at toddler storytime, but this alternate activity will hit the spot. Thank you for sharing! 😍

  2. Thanks, Jessica! I had a lot of fun writing this one. :)
