On the eight day of Christmas my Daddy read to me:
|Snowballs by Louis Ehlert|
We then ended our day by making our own snow family out of canned biscuit dough. My kids still put everything in their mouth, but if your kids are past that, consider using shaving cream on a wax paper and trace circles with their little fingers to make a snow family.
anything else they may like
|Playing with the dough|
|Talking about the textures and tastes.|
|Eating a little too.|
|With a little help from Daddy too!|
|This was a great way to kill some time before dinner!|
|Ready for the oven!|
It is funny to think they are learning by doing this, but really, anything that uses ALL the five senses is sure to be a hit.Smell it... check
Taste it... check
Hear it... I hope not, but check
Touch it... CHECK
See it... check
Not to mention the quality reading time with Daddy, and the baking fun with mommy.
When we finished making our snow family, we baked them according to directions and enjoyed!
|These snow people didn't melt!|
