Winter is settling in and this mama is ready for warm weather already. Does anyone else feel the same way about the cold? I absolutely love a pretty snowfall, but after the first couple snows I am ready for the warmth to return. The kids absolutely LOVE going out and playing in the snow. One of my favorite ways to engage my kids in the winter is by bringing the snow in from outside and using it for fun activities like this Snow CVC Words Sensory Bin!
*Pair this with our Snow Centers and Activities for Pre-K and Kindergarten!
Snow CVC Words Sensory Bin
Supplies You Will Need
- CVC word cards printable below
- Tray or bin
- snow (can also use fake snow, salt, flour, or white sand)
- paint brush
How To Set Up the CVC Words Activity
Laminate the page of CVC word cards and cut them out.
Tape each of the CVC words to the bottom of the bin or tray. You can just lay them on the tray, but they will move around a bit and can cause some frustration and mess so I highly recommend taping them down.
Cover the tray and cards with your “snow” cover of choice. If you use real snow, you will want to lay down some towels or have them handy for when the snow starts to melt.

How To Play
Once you have your tray all set up, take a paintbrush and gently brush away the snow until you find a CVC word card.
Identify the word on the card and write it on the recording sheet for additional practice.
Continue to uncover the CVC words, identify them, and write the words on the recording sheet until all words have been uncovered and read.
This activity is a great hands-on, engaging literacy center activity during the winter months for preschool and kindergarten.
- Use a paintbrush to write the CVC words in snow.
- Stamp the CVC words in playdough.
