Snow Ice Cream

The other day we got about two inches of snow so making snow ice cream was a must! It’s super easy! All you need is a large bowl of clean snow, one can of sweetened condensed milk, 1 tsp of vanilla, and a few drops of food coloring (optional).

Mix snow, sweet milk, vanilla and food coloring. Once mixed I put it into the freeze for 30 minutes to make sure it’s good and cold! Serve!

We added green food coloring for St. Patricks coming up!

Animal Snow Day {Baby Bin}

20130228-072236.jpg
A few days ago we had our first good snow this winter. With it being Mr. B’s 1st snow day I was too excited to let him discover. I tossed some in a tray then added his favorite animals to play with gnaw on.

I let him discover the cold animals and snow on his own and he was absolutely loving it. While he examined the snow I would tell him “cold snow” and soon enough each time he touched the snow he would look at me and grin waiting for me to tell him once again.

I love to see Mr. B in discovery 🙂

& I must share Mr. B with his aunt, sisters and VERY FIRST SNOWMAN!

ABC Egg Dig {In Snow}

20130226-165306.jpg
Yesterday’s snow was brought indoors for a little ABC recognition and sound practice for the littles.
We filled our block wagon with snow and hid our halved Easter eggs that have our uppercase letters on one half and lowercase letters on the other in the snow.

As the littles dug through the snow they would collect the egg halves in their bowls. They loved playing in the snow while indoors where it was nice and warm {warm enough for Miss Grace to spend the day in her swim suit, obviously she is longing for summer, haha}.

When all the eggs were found we sat down and the littles searched for the correct letters that went with their halves then matched them. I helped very little, but when an egg was matched I had the littles say their sound. They were so proud of their teamwork and one another that they kept praising one another with each success. I loved the high five!

Of course if you don’t have snow you could use other fillers such as water, sand, shaving cream & etc.
