Such a great start to December with Winter Wonderland Snowflakes! We haven’t seen any real snowflakes yet so the anticipation is exciting.
Winter Wonderland Snowflakes
Here’s everything included in the Mother Goose Time Winter Wonderland Lesson 1 Snowflakes kit:
Plenty of fun activities and materials that draw the kids’ attention.
Popsicle Stick Snowflakes
Through making the popsicle stick hanging snowflakes, we explored the shape of snowflakes.
We used blue, purple and silver glitter paint to paint the snowflakes. Then we sprinkled them with sparkly glitter.
I added pipecleaner loops so they can be hung up for ornaments or winter decorations.
Each month we write our names on name tags and display them in our writing area. They can be used as a reference when someone wants to write names and I date and save them for portfolios. It’s amazing to see the progress over time! Making snowy names was a fun way to practice name writing and letter recognition for December.
Snowflake Math Concepts
Using snowflake builders to sort by color, count, explore the snowflake shape and create designs.
Snowflake Cinnamon Tortillas
For snack, I made snowflake cinnamon tortillas. Simply cut tortillas like a snowflake, spray both with cooking spray, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake for a few minutes at 400°. Yum!
A snack and a story = a perfect combination! Winter is Here!
