Winter Play

Winter Play

We’ve enjoyed lots of winter play recently and are actually still in the middle of it all. I’m sharing some of the things we’ve enjoyed so far…

Arctic land… there is a video of this on Instagram here

Balancing ‘Snowballs’ and ‘Ice’

Actually beads and glass pebbles – so much concentration demonstrated here (the tray is from TTS, here).

Decorating a Winter Tree

Threading frosty coloured beads onto pipe cleaners and hanging them on the branches, along with beaded garlands…

I’ve relocated it to a different place in the classroom as they are still loving the activity.

Some of the boys enjoyed playing with the loose parts without the dough. They said they were making a forest…

Building ‘Icy’ Structures

We don’t have very much of this ‘PlayPlax’, but I separated the clear and blue and put them on the light panel. Just to see what they would do with it really…

Trees, snowflakes and numerals…

Hunting for Frost, Snow and Ice 

We don’t generally get much snow where we are, so frost and ice is just as exciting!

  2. Always inspiring! My centers right now include a “snowman factory” with glittery, white, peppermint-scented play dough, light-box with inexpensive snowflake ornaments from the dollar store, “gems”, “diamonds” and glass stones; two ideas inspired by your classroom blog. Thank you for keeping it fresh and fun. Now I need to look for some on-sale holiday cake toppers!
