I really like Ezra Jack Keats stories, they are so simple and sweet.
I was really hoping for snow this month, but we have yet to receive a significant amount. Needless to say, we made do with what we were given, and had a fun week full of snowy activities.
Letter of the week: S
Bible verse: A wise son maketh a glad father. Proverbs 15:20a
While the boys traced, colored, and cut out the S Bible verse coloring page, they worked on memorizing their Bible verse. I use Proverbs for Preschoolers: Through the Proverbs from A to Z workbook. This book is part of our Character Concepts Curriculum.
Working hard on their S coloring page.
Okay, we did get snow. But it did not stick and accumulate into anything wonderful.
This is all the snow we have received so far this winter. I'm hoping for a big February snowstorm!
A Special Treat!
Traffic Light Graham Crackers.
I saw this treat made somewhere, not sure where?
I decided this would be a fun treat to make, since there is a picture of a traffic light on the cover of the book and in the story.
To make, you will need...
~graham crackers - We used graham cracker snack sticks.
~ M&M's candy
The boys had a fun time making these, as well as eating them!
For this project, I bought a bag of M&M's, and of course we needed red, green, and yellow.
Would you believe there were only 3 red M&M's in the whole bag?
Making Crystal Snowflakes.
You can find instructions here.
Big D's Crystal Snowflake.
I thought this was a really neat experiment! Big D really liked dumping all the Borax into the jar, and watching the snowflake form throughout the day.
More books we read to go along with The Snowy Day
- In the story Whistle for Willie there is a picture of a Traffic light, just like in The Snowy Day . The boys noticed this comparison.
- For the story The Mitten we played a mitten matching game, which you can find here.
Potato Masher Snowmen
We borrowed my mom's old potato masher, and stamped out some snowmen to dress.

counting snowballs(cotton balls) with tweezers.
I set up 10 bowls labeled 1 - 10. Big D had to use a tweezer to fill the bowls
with the correct amount of snowballs.

Thanks for visiting!
We are currently rowing the book The Glorious Flight, come back to see our fun projects for this book.
