Our first snow day was a blast, even though it was 89°!
The kids seem to have more fun on our second day of snow fun. They were pros at climbing on the sled and enjoying the ride down the slope. We had a snowball fight and even got to make a bigger snowman. Hip, hip, hooray!
The cold weather in January brought a discussion of snow!! In Room 2 we had fun reading the book The Snowy Day, by Ezra Jack Keats. This beloved Caldecott Award winning book is about a little boy Peter who goes out and has adventures in the snow. Our dramatic play was transformed into a snowy day scene so our children could reenact it. They even had snowball fights!
They also had fun making Snowmen in different forms: art, sensory, and food.
We had so many different sensory/science activities; we made snow men with shaving cream and baking soda on trays. In the sensory bin we had fake insta-Snow.
They painted snowmen and snow girls (some children put long hair on their snow person) with white paint as well as puffy paint. We used paper collage and “bleach snow” and made snowmen as big as our name!
