Frosty Fun

This week brought us plenty of frosty fun indoors because we had no snow outside...

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 just the right size for throwing.
 It was fun trying on a "Frosty hat"
After reading The Biggest, Best Snowman Ever, by Margery Cuyler, we built a snowman of our own. Since we didn't have any snow, we had to work together to build one using three different size boxes. One big one for the bottom, a middle-size one for the middle and a small one for the head. 
We added eyes, a nose, a mouth and some buttons...
We named him Frosty!
Using white and light blue collage materials, we created some beautiful snow collages...
Since we didn't have any real snow, we went on a pretend walk. We had to put on all of our pretend snow gear- boots, snowsuits, mittens and hats. We sloshed through mud and puddles. There was a pond where we could skate. Knee-deep snow was fun to step in, and we loved making snow angels in the deep snow.  
Cotton circle shapes and lots of accessories like twigs, buttons, beans and more, provided us with some creative snowman building...
"Snow paint" made with ivory soap flakes and white tempera paint, made for some textured snow painting at the easel...
Of course there was no snow or ice outside, so we had to create indoors!
We had ice sculptures to paint with colored water...
And, without snow, we had to improvise a bit on our sledding after reading The Wild Toboggan Ride

It was quite the wild ride!
