Frosty Fun

This week brought us plenty of frosty fun indoors and out...
Circle shapes and lots of big, colorful buttons provided us with some creative snowman building...
Our favorite song of the week was "Frosty the Snowman". The book by the same name, written by Jack Rollins has always been a favorite.
We had an indoor snowball fight using white pom poms of all sizes. It was fun trying on a "Frosty hat". 
After reading The Biggest, Best Snowman Ever, by Margery Cuyler, we headed outside to build a snowman. We named him Olaf.
With all of the cold weather, Olaf managed to stick around for a few days. 
We talked about what happens when a snowman melts and then proceeded to make "snowman soup", which also became a fun math activity as we counted the things in our soup.
We used white snow paint to create a "snowstorm" on paper.
 We sang about sledding, to the tune of "Three Little Monkeys", as we played in the snow with sleds:
Five little snowmen sliding on a sled,
One fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called Frosty and Frosty said,
No more snowmen sliding on a sled."
Four little... Three little... Two little... One little...
White playdough was easy to roll into balls to create snowmen and a variety of other things. 
We had a frosty fun time being outside and playing in the snow!
