Before Five In A Row: The Snowy Day

Due to what I am terming "scatterbrainedness" on the part of Mommy, I'm a week late in posting this. Last week we read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and while it certainly wasn't LittleBear's favorite book, we did read it every day and he did seem to enjoy the "games" we played that revolved around the book.

Here is what we had planned for the week:

Day 1-
- Decorate house with paper snowflakes (talk about how each one is God made us) & hang snowballs on fishing line in the window
Day 2-
- Tissue paper art
Day 3-
Day 4-
- Fruit Snowman on a Stick snack

Well, also due to circumstances beyond our control, we didn't get to do the tissue paper art, handprint art or snowflake pattern activities. We did manage to get the others done though and LittleBear enjoyed them all. The cotton balls strung on fishing line sounded like a better idea than it ended up being, so we only got one string done. However, there were LOTS of cotton ball snowball fights throughout the week that made up for it and were enjoyed by all.

Our camera has been having issues, but I did manage to get a small photo gallery done:

Week8-The Snowy Day

We are taking a break this week to regroup...Hopefully next week we'll be back to speed around here!
