Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Here in Georgia, we occasionally have cool weather in January, but rarely is it cold enough for snow or ice. That doesn't stop us from really enjoying our winter unit and all the fun that that entails. You may have read about our "Faux Snow Day" on Prek and K Sharing. To help get us in the spirit, we decorated a playtent to make it an igloo, and later made a cute paper plate walrus to adorn it (above). We also made igloos with cotton....

and with marshmallows.

We also used cotton balls and our polar animals for sensory play...

We did a little ice fishing (and worked in some letter recognition)!

We made snowman windsocks....

We graphed our favorite polar animal: polar bear, walrus or penguin. What's your favorite?

We served up "hot cocoa" in our Hot Cocoa Stand....

And made wonderful "Snowman Snacks" from Donettes to snack on.... YUM!!!


  1. excellent post, very informative. I'm wondering why the opposite experts of this sector do not realize this. You must proceed your writing. I'm sure, you have a huge readers' base already!
