Good morning everyone! This month we are bringing you all kinds of wintry ideas! Living in Arizona makes it a little difficult to understand and appreciate what a real winter is. (But being from Canada, I know!) Even so, we do lots of fun winter themed activities throughout the winter months. One of my all-time favorite winter activities is these Snow Kids!
I love incorporating art with writing. Even more I LOVE incorporating student pictures into their work. This activity has all three tied into one! For this activity I read a few books about snowy days. Especially since we live in Arizona I like to show videos about snowy days. Last year I showed them a skiing video with an avalanche and they loved it! I put it on my staff website and they kept watching it all throughout the year! Together we brainstorm a list of activities that we would like to do on a snowy day. Then I pass out the snow kids papers and have them write their own sentences. After they were finished writing and coloring I cut out the circles for their faces. I tape their pictures behind and mount the finished product on blue paper. Put them on display - they're sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Check them out here.
On a snowy day I like to drink hot chocolate and go ice skating! Luckily I can still do both of those things while living in Arizona! Better yet, I don't have to suffer through the cold to do it! ;)
What's your favorite thing to do on a Snowy Day???
