Let it snow!

Did you get snow over the weekend? Quite likely, since 49 of the 50 states now currently have snow. I, however, am living in Florida, where snow continues to be elusive and just out of our reach. In my mind, January should equal snow, so this week we have been making our own.

Make and Takes suggested using coffee filters for cutting out snowflakes. Let me tell you, the filters work wonderfully. Already in a perfect circle shape, and they are a little thinner and easier to cut through for little fingers. They were well worth the 97 cents I paid for 100 filters (although I did feel a little weird buying coffee filters, since that isn’t something I have ever consumed…)

We have them decorating our windows and hanging from the ceiling.

Later this week we plan to add a little color to our snowflakes. And when we get tired of our filter snowflakes, I think we’ll make a few out of q-tips.

Thanks to Confessions of a Homeschooler, the Sweet Bee and I have plenty of preschool activities to keep us busy. Today we had fun with the snowman matching card. We matched number clothespins with the appropriately numbered snowman, then counted and put each snowman in order.

Here are the books we are reading to complete our snow-themed bookshelf:

Snowmen At Night by Caralyn Buehner

Snowmen All Year by Caralyn Buehner

Thomas’ Snowsuit by Robert Munsch

The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats


Katy and the Big Snow by Virginia Lee Burton


Stella, Queen of the Snow by Mary-Louise Gay
