Winter in the woods week 2… snowman Day!

Snowman Day

Welcome back this week at Mrs. Kats Kids. We started our second week with Experience early learning ( formally mother goose time) winter in the woods this week our topics were Pine tree, snowflake, pinecones, icicles, and snowman. We had a great time this week with our Preschool curriculum and we want to show you what our snowman day looked liked.

A look inside our snowman day at Mrs. Kat’s

First we ended circle time up with singing frosty the snowman and reading the book The Christmas Snowman. The children really enjoyed that the animals all helped the snowman become a Christmas Snowman.

After our story, we went to the table and I told the children that I wanted them to use their imagination and make their very own Christmas snowman. I sat out different styles of hats and noses made out of construction paper, beans, Googly eyes, yarn, white paint and bubble wrap. I then gave each child Blue construction paper and three different sizes of white circles. Next, I asked them to build their snowman using the circles and glue. Then I told them to use the Materials on the table and make your snowman into your very own Christmas snowman.

It is truly amazing seeing a child’s mind at work. Every child used their own imagination to create their very own Christmas snowman. It’s so much fun seeing their personalities shine through their snowman.

My snowman story and counting snowballs

Snowball fight

who doesn’t like a good snowball fight… we had so much fun dividing into team and using cotton balls as “snowballs” we also counted to see how many snowballs we had at the end.

We used our snowman cube cards that came with our preschool curriculum we took turns tossing the cube and then we counted how many snowballs were on the picture. Then we rolled playdough into that amount of snowballs.

Snowball story

Our snowman story focused the children to think of the sequence of making a snowman. What happens first to last.

This week we also made our Christmas gifts for our parents, this is always one of my favorite activities to do each year. My favorite part is seeing how excited they get to give their parents a gift.
I hope you all had a great week and we will see you again next week. Thanks for stopping by.
