Goodbye Peace Week
|Our last activity - Handprint Doves|
Now it's time for Winter Week and our Winter Wonderland. Let it snow--or, at least, let's pretend!
I didn't go too crazy this time hanging snowflakes all over (see Weather Week). Just enough to get the idea...
When Little Mama woke up, we followed the snowflake trail. Snowflakes Little Mama!
Let's go see...
Little Mama was excited at the prospect of a new week. "It's not Peace Week anymore." No, you're right.
To get things started, we made a waffles & fruit snowmen.

This guy came complete with a strawberry hat and scarf, thinly sliced banana arms, blueberry buttons and raisin eyes. Mmm, delicious.
Let's not forget about the snow!

Next up, a silly science experiment (if you can call it that)...

Ok, since we are no longer on the east coast and are miles away from any real snow, we had to make do with what we had--ice. Little Mama loved this simple activity. I put a few ice cubes in a bowl and let her touch them. Whoooaa, it's cold Little Mama! Again, she absolutely loved it. She was so excited to touch the ice and play with it, putting her hands on and off again. We talked about how the ice felt and what would happen if we used gloves.

Then we poured a small amount of really hot water over the ice cubes and talked about what would happen to the ice. (This required really close supervision.) Little Mama, the ice cubes are melting! Look, they are getting smaller and smaller.
Cheers to a new week. Let's see what this week brings.
