Here ages 4-5 are creating little snowstorms to send through the mail. They use paper punch outs and we put them in envelopes for them to send home. They love getting things in the mail.
The outside time is important. We take walks in the neighborhood, gathering material for artworks, playing games and creating obstacle courses.
During the first week we made flags and snowflake banners for a winter parade. We love a parade.
Ages 4-5 made these beautiful winter flags made from fabric which they painted and added other smaller fabrics and colorful yarn.
The older kids, ages 6-9 made these lovely snowflake banners for the parade.
We cut out snowflakes from paper, added some white glitter and hung them for sticks we had found on our walk.
I brought in bells and other musical instruments for the kids to carry in the parade. We all set off down the street, waving at people and ringing our bells. Some of the parents also joined us in our Winter Parade. A good time was had by all.
