This simple art activity captures that frosty winter feeling! Use a white crayon to draw a winter scene on a sheet of black or dark blue construction paper. Then use a cotton swab or a small paintbrush to paint over the scene with a solution of epsom salt dissolved in warm water.
Building Snowmen - Tall and small and everything between! These snowmen come in a variety of heights! Make several balls from white play dough so they resemble snowballs and place them at a table. Have two youngsters visit the table. One child rolls a die and counts the dots. Then she builds a snowman with that number of snowballs. Her partner repeats the process. Then students compare the heights of their snowmen, using words such as shorter, taller, and equal.
