We are so excited to bring you a fun snowball math game, featuring homemade sparkling snow playdough inspired by Abominable, now on Digital, and on Blu-ray & DVD on December 17.
From the studio that brought you How To Train Your Dragon, Abominable is the perfect movie to watch as you cuddle up with your family for a night in this holiday season. Abominable is also a great gift this holiday season, with over an hour of bonus content, including 2 Original Shorts!
When mischievous friends Yi (Chloe Bennet), Jin, and Peng discover a young yeti on their roof, they name him Everest and embark on a thrilling adventure to reunite the magical creature with his family.
On the journey of their lifetimes, Everest helps Yi, Jin, and Peng unlock an inner bravery they didn’t know they had. And as they travel across China to return the magical creature to his home, Everest will help them discover where they truly belong, too.
We planned a fun movie night with Andy and his cousins to watch Abominable, now available on Digital, and Blu-ray and DVD December 17th. The boys enjoyed hot chocolate, snuggled with Everest, and loved the movie.
We love the positive message of the movie. The characters never give up on their journey to find Everest’s way home showing that “a little positivity goes a long way”!
Because we loved the movie so much, we were inspired to to make some homemade glittering snow playdough to play with as well as a few printable math games that the boys could use to practice.
Homemade Glittering Snow Playdough
Here’s what you need to make this Homemade Glittering Snow Playdough:
- 2 cups cornstarch
- 1 cup conditioner
- Fine white glitter
- Fine silver glitter
- Mixing bowl and spoon
Add the cornstarch and glitter to the bowl, then slowly mix in the conditioner. Use your hands to knead and mix the playdough to form a soft, clumpy dough that can be rolled into snowballs.
Print the Abominable Snowball Math Games on cardstock and laminate them. You could also use packing tape to seal both sides if you don’t have access to a laminator.
Now, it’s time to play!
Roll two dice and use the numbers you rolled to make an equation.
Count out the number of snowballs needed for each number, then count out the number of snowballs needed to discover the answer.
This fun visual is a great strategy for kids to employ when working with math problems.
My kiddo and his cousins had so much fun imagining their own adventure with Everest as they played our Snowball Math Games.
I am adding the Abominable Blu-ray to our gift list so they can watch it and remember our movie night together!
Remember to get your copy of Abominable, now available on Digital and on Blu-ray & DVD December 17th!
