Today we had fun talking about snow flakes. Thankfully we have had a few already this year so the kids knew what I was talking about. I hope when it snowed really good the last time that you went out and made some snow cream. I think I posted the recipe. I have great memories of my mom going outside and gathering clean snow in a white metal bowl and making my brother and I snow cream. Delicious !
We practiced cutting snow flakes today. The kids will do this for a LONG time if you just sit them at the table with scissors and scrap paper. They are always amazed when they open the paper to find a snowflake.
We made snowflakes from marshmallows too !
We also ate snowflakes. TORTILLA snow flakes. The kids loved these too. Just cut the tortilla like you would a piece of paper , fry and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Snowflake yumminess !
This week a friend from North Dakota that runs a fabulous preschool sent us a video of their outside play time in the snow. We watched it today and the kids were amazed. I have to say that as I was outside today in a sweater dress with boots and tights and very comfortable I was thankful I wasnt knee deep in snow every day for 4 months. I love Arkansas Seasons. If I want to enjoy snow i will go visit colorado or Bev ! I was thinking maybe Bev and I could talk some more and maybe have a video pen pal type chat with our kids once a week or so. I think it would be interesting.
Thanks again for understanding us needing to close yesterday. Your messages and prayers were appreciated.
