Welcome Winter (and a full moon freebie)!

Friday, 21 December 2018

This year, instead of a Christmas party, we had a Welcome Winter Day where parents were invited in to help with a few seasonal activities.

Since winter has just begun, there is still lots of time for you to try any of these activities with your kiddos!

First up are the bird feeders we made from the pine cones we collected earlier in the month.  The children loved watching the petals open as they were very wet when we brought them inside.  We used Crisco instead of peanut butter due to allergies.

We decorated candles using modeling wax.  This is such a great fine motor activity as well as a sensory experience for the littles.

 We read the book Snowballs by Lois Ehlert and made our own collage snowmen.

A cute felt snowman and headband from Dollar Tree were transformed into games.  Click here for the noses to play pin the carrot on the snowman!

And this is just the traditional headband game with winter vocabulary words. 

Lastly, we enjoyed a build-a-snowman snack - as much fun to make as it is to eat!

Sticking with the winter theme, this month's full moon freebie is a math reader you can use to introduce or review flat shapes. Yours free for the next 48 hours!

Winter can be long, and sometimes we are inside more than we like, hoping you'll find cozy ways to keep your kiddos idle hands busy during this season.

Thanks for stopping by,
