Snow--my kids are always in awe of the first couple of snowfalls. The first one this year was no exception. The older kids pulled out the scissors and paper and taught the little ones how to make snowflakes. The window in our homeschool room is adorned with their handi-work, and it makes me smile.
For toddler/preschool time, I asked my older daughter to read a book from our Christmas box. She picked The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.
I saved our Snowy Yuck just for today.
This time I remembered to make it in a disposable dish. We added water and had our own bowl full of snow! Well, except that it wasn't cold nor did it melt and you'd be in big trouble if you ate it. :)
We made some snowballs and miniature snow forts.
A perfect way to experience snow without getting cold!
