Today we enjoyed learning about snowflakes. Though there haven’t been many real snowflakes yet this year, we enjoyed making some of our own after a few great books. We enjoyed Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and The Story of Snow by Marc Cassino. This is an awesome book (my favorite!) about snowflakes (science, non-fiction).
After reading about snowflakes, we decided to do a super easy craft that kiddos always love.
- White coffee filters
1. Fold the coffee filter in half 3 times
2. Cut triangles out of each side (small, large, all the same, all different)
3. Open it up!
We decided it was time to take down our beautiful fall leaves from an earlier post Simple Fall Craft to Brighten Up a Window . However, we left up the tree representing a tree in the winter and decided to add our snowflakes around it. The kiddos were so proud and excited to hang them up!
