Life & Times of a playroom

hours of fun with pretend snow

Rate this Entry
as it is in minus figures here, the LOs are finding it too bitter to be outside, so i made some pretend snow.

everyone watched amazed as the powder and water mixed and grew into SNOW!

the LOs have made houses and dens for polar bears and penguins, tracks & prints and roads.

we counted the number of spades, rakes & scoops; discussed colour and shape and made patterns.

we talked about countries where it is snowy and cold all the time.

we made up stories and acted out one of our current favoruite stories '5 little penguins slipping on the ice'

the LOs practiced sharing and taking turns and complimented each other over what they had made, done or said.

wow! we have covered so much, all in a mornings play with pretend snow!

i think father christmas and reindeer might come and visit this afternoon!
