Kathleen and I talked about Wintertime. We are possibly getting snow tomorrow, so I am hoping for a little more this time so the girls can enjoy it. Last time it was just a dusting on the ground.
Today we started by making a fun craft. We recreated snow looking out of a window! These are the materials you will need:
1 sandwich bag, cut the top off but not the seal part.
1 1/2 tsp sugar
Dark blue, light blue, and red construction paper.
Window and curtain pattern, trace on white then cut and trace on construction paper.
Have fun shaking it and watching it snow!
We also had fun saying a few jokes and riddles while doing the project.
What do snowmen eat for breakfast?
What did Frosty call his cow?
I can swim or walk for miles
I'm big with thick white hair
I live up in the Artic
I am a ........(Polar Bear)
I'm usually made of colored yarn
by someone who is knitting
Unless ones lost I come in pairs
Of course I am a ......(mitten)
I've got a big mustache
I dig shellfish with my tusks
I swim in icy waters
I am a..... (walrus)
We also made a snowball dessert!
You will need:
8 oz cream cheese softened
1/2 cup butter softened
1/4 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup cookie crumbs or chocolate chips ( we chose chocolate chips!)
powdered sugar for rolling
Combine cream cheese, butter and vanilla in a mixing bowl, cream together, adding in powdered sugar
Stir in the chocolate chips by hand
After cleaning up we read some Fancy Nancy books and did our daily learning.
Since we talked about Jack Frost I had this little poem to share with her.
Where did you get that little red nose?
Jack Frost kissed it I suppose
He kissed it once. He kissed it twice
Poor little nose its as cold as ice!
(while saying it I was kissing her on the nose :-)
This one is sang to the tune of I'm a Little Teapot:
I'm a little snowflake,look at me
No other snowflake is just like me
I am so unique,as you can see
And just as special as I can be!
I really enjoy planning and doing all theses activities with my girls. If any of you have questions or private comments for me feel free to email me as well. I enjoy hearing from you! email@example.com
