Last night we received the phone call that schools were closed today due to the ice and snow they were calling for. So today we are enjoying the day together. A little less chores for Mommy and a lot more fun together with the girls!!
We got out our box of magic to be creative making a snowman and a snow scene picture! For the snowman we stapled two paper plates together and from there our imaginations took over and creativity set in!!
My kids have an abundance of art supplies, and some days I complain about them having too much. Yet when they pull out their resources and create, I am so happy they do have a variety to work with!
Hayley's completed snowman...
Hayley made a fairy house in snow, complete with closet with clothes hanging up!
After this we were feeling a need for a snack so we made snowman soup!!
1) favorite mug
2) hot cocoa
4) M&Ms (usually use chocolate kisses but we ran out!)
5) candy cane for stirring
Result..... serious sugar high...serve with caution!! LOL
Add chocolate first and stir well...
Next the marshmallows....
Mix with candy cane....
We also sang a little song as we went along...
" One little snowflake with nothing to do. Along came another and then there were two!
Two little snowflakes laughing with me, along came another, then there were three!
Three little snowflakes looking for some more,
along came another, then there were four!
Four little snowflakes dancing a jive, along came another and then there were five!
Five little snowflakes having so much fun!
Out came the sun and then there were none!"
We are also planning to write a snowman book this afternoon. But we are getting ready for lunch, then snuggling in warm blankets and picking a movie to watch. :-)
Hope you all are enjoying your day!!
