The Snowy Day Sand (salt) Art


The Snowy Day Sand Art, originally uploaded by SunnyNole.

Today, it was REALLY cold outside, so, during Ella's LONG morning nap, our morning activity was centered around the idea of cold weather. We read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and made our own "tracks in the snow" using salt as our "snow" and a cookie sheet to keep it not-so-messy. We made Peters footprints and tracks and then practiced drawing our letters. We sipped hot cocoa and ate granola bars. I read The Snowy Day like fifteen times for Camden (he loves that book). Then, we practiced our snow angels on the carpet. Camden can make a LOVELY snow angel. More pictures of our fun in the "snow" below.
