Bright Ideas for Snowy Days

Hello Friends,

I am linking up with Bright Ideas with a few snowy day ideas... .especially since so many of us are experiencing more snow than usual this winter! :)

One of my favorite ideas is to bundle up my kiddos, give them a black piece of construction paper, and bring them outside when the snow is falling. The snowflakes fall on the paper and the kids can see their shapes! It is so much fun listening to their astonishment when seeing that snowflakes really do look like the paper ones they make in the classroom!

When you bring them back to the classroom, give them white paper to create paper snowflakes and then write about what they observed and learned about snowflakes.

Another fun and easy snow activity is to scoop up bowls of snow, give your kiddos a thermometer, and let them watch the temperature drop!

Here are a few cute snowy day crafts to do....

Snowy day neighborhood using construction paper and white paint.

Snowy day kids using construction paper, shaving cream and glue, and diamond dust glitter!

Patchwork snowman using construction paper, buttons, fabric scraps, and white paint.

Spring will be here soon, my friends, but while you are waiting, have some snowy day fun!
