Simple Snow Week Fun!

I don't know about where you all live, but here at our place it has been COLD and SNOWY!!   I thought it would be the perfect week to do some fun snow activities with the kids.  Since we are busy busy trying to get our house re-organized, I knew the activities this week needed to be simple.  Even though they only took a few minutes to do, this activity and snack were a huge hit!!

First up, the kids LOVED helping me make their very own Snowstorms in a Bottle!


All you need to make your own are an empty water bottle, fill it halfway with water then add equal amounts corn syrup.  Then dump in as much glitter as you like and screw on the lid VERY tight! ;)

 

Then let your kids go crazy shaking their bottle and creating their very own snowstorm!



I was pleasantly surprised at how much my kids enjoyed these...they would loved spinning them on the counter, turning them upside down, shaking them, and seeing how long it took all the "snow" to settle.

After my kids were done playing with their snowstorms they did a really fun worksheet that I found online at 1+1+1=1.  My kids loved cutting out all the buttons and glueing them on...and it was a great way to practice colors and shapes with my younger ones.


While the kids were working on their snowmen I threw together these SIMPLE Marshmallow Snowmen snacks.  I'm sure you've seen them before, they are not super original, but my kids absolutely loved them



Yep...just a marshmallow, black frosting, and slivered almonds for a cute snowman nose!





Tomorrow we are going to venture outside to play in the REAL stuff...so make sure you check back for another fun activity!!  I hope you are all having a great week!!

How cute!! I live in South Carolina, so we never see any snow. :( Maybe I'll have to create my own fake snowstorm to make myself feel better!
I'd love for you to share this at my link party! http://rainbowsandhoneysuckle.blogspot.com/2013/01/craft-yourself-crazy-link-party-2.html
