Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. The classroom citrus trees are blooming and ready to welcome you back to the GEC. We’ll begin tomorrow in the classroom with a snowy story and some crafty hands on nature play: winding, weaving, and wondering about snowflakes.
Those who want to pack up in snow pants and winter gear and take a small hike together afterwards…. The weather report for tomorrow says
Wednesday: A slight chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 24. Wind chill values between zero and 10. Blustery, with a west wind 14 to 24 mph, with gusts as high as 38 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.”
Here is an article that children and nature network posted last year: “how cold is too cold to play outside?”
Please RSVP to let me know if you can join us, 9am-10am, sign up online, or just pop in.
If you can’t make it, I hope you’ll send me some of your favorite ways to enjoy the snow. Have you tried bring some in on a cookie sheet? How about spray bottles with food coloring to tie-dye the snow? Today I caught some snowflakes on a square of black felt – so simple and beautiful and totally worth the trip to michael’s!
