The cold, snowy weather is here to stay for a while in upstate New York. My boys and I have pulled our favorite wintry reads off the shelves. We love to spend evenings with mugs of cocoa and books about blizzards! They’ve always been fans of the ‘Old Lady’ series, so we’ve read There Was A Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow! a lot lately. Inspired by the fun rhyme, I put together a flexible learning activity for my boys. Read on to learn more about the book. You can also see how we’re using it to reinforce some basic skills.

Cut & Paste Sequencing Activity
There was an Cold Lady who Swallowed Some Snow Activities
Kindergarten Winter Cut & Paste Activity
- As you read there was an old lady who swallowed a snowflake story aloud, add each item to her stomach as she swallows them in the book.
- After reading, from memory, add the items to her stomach in the same sequence the cold lady swallowed them. This is a great way to test story comprehension and retention!
- Add the items to her stomach in alphabetical order.
- Place the items in her stomach in reverse alphabetical order.
- Add the items according to the colors your child colored them. (This is especially great for younger siblings that are playing along)
- Call out clues and see if your child adds them in the right order.
- ‘First, add a word that starts with P’.
- ‘Next, add the word that rhymes with ‘cat’.’
- And so on.
- The possibilities are endless- it’s simple to adapt to your child’s own needs! I included some blank squares as well, to allow your child to create their own versions of the story!
