Fun with snow…. inside

It’s January…. and in January we get a lot of snow!  Are the kids you work with too young to go outside and play with snow?  Or, is it too cold to take them out?  I have an alternative suggestion: bring some snow inside to let them touch and play with.  When I worked in the preschool and it was too cold to bring the kids outside, we would bring the snow inside and put it into the water tables.  The kids had so much fun playing with the snow.

Just keep an eye on their hands- they can only play with it for a short period of time because their hands will get too cold.Screenshot*I found this photo (on google images) from the blog funinprek1@blogspot.com*

  1. Your reminded me of something similar we did years ago! It was one of those cold cold Wisconsin days and we had LOTS of snow outside! The kids were all young so rather than bundle them all up and go outside, I brought a kiddie pool full inside!! Into MY KITCHEN!!! They played in that for hours!! It was great fun! Thanks for the prompt idea! I think I am gonna post that story!
