The first thing we did was make a Borax crystal snowflake to get ready for the snow coming in. This was a great science project. Our snowflake is now hanging from our ceiling fan at Lily's request.
We went out in the snow for a bit. We had read in the book about making snow angels, so she had to try it!
We didn't get to make a snowman, because the snow was not good packing snow. After freezing in the snow for a while, we came inside and made "inside snow." It is just toilet paper, Ivory soap and water. It made a moldable "snow" that we could make a snowman with. :)
We made an icicle art project-watered down white paint with sparkly glitter. Lily blew the paint with a straw to make her "icicles."
Of course, no snow unit would be complete without coffee filter snowflakes. :)
We have a science kit that had some "insta-snow" in it. Lily spent an ENTIRE day playing with this stuff!
All in all, it was a short, fun little detour unit. And it got us ready for the next week when we got MORE snow!
