Here are the details for each of our Winter activities:
Winter Read Aloud:
Ice Paint/Tape Resist Snowflakes:
For this art activity I dyed water with liquid watercolors and froze them into blue & purple ice cubes with popsicle sticks in them. Then I taped snowflakes on cardstock with washi tape. Aubrey used the colored ice to paint over the snowflake shapes. After a bit of painting, I helped to remove the tape and reveal . *Be careful not to let the paper get too soaked or the tape will be hard to pull off without ripping the paper.
Glowing Winter Water Beads:
Aubrey loved this glowing winter water bead sensory bin. Putting our sensory bin on top of our light pad added just enough magic to pique her curiosity.
**Remember water beads are NOT taste safe, so if your littles are likely to take a bite, try using tapioca pearls instead.
Stained Glass Mittens:
I love a good stained glass craft so when I found this tutorial from Maria at Kinder Craze I knew it would be perfect for this week! Go grab the free templates and directions here.
