Sample Activities and Instructions

Regardless of the weather, we can have fun playing with our hands! We’ll practice letters and shapes in salt while we stay warm!
If there’s snow outside, we’ll bring some indoors! We can color the snow with food coloring and then see how snow melts.
We’ll catch some snowflakes and learn how each is unique! A snow shower, black paper and a magnifying glass is all we need.
