What a treat to have a snow day on the last day of term before Christmas. On a snow day we receive an automated message from our school district. Initially the message said all schools would open 2 hours late but this soon changed to ‘closed for the day’.
In preparation for the Winter Olympics we tried bobsledding. The girls lay on their front while their sisters pushed them down the hill shouting oy,oy,oy. I can’t wait for the Winter Olympics to show them real bobsledding – I loved watching it as a kid.
The girls started the make a snowman. I suggested we see if we could roll a really big ball to make a body. My 9-year-old found it difficult as the snow kept crumbling so I started it off for her and then everyone joined in to help.
He soon ended up with his friend.
After a break for cookies and hot chocolate, I filled some glitter sprinklers and herb containers with powder paint. The little ones enjoyed sprinkling around while my eldest drew pictures in the snow with her fingers and coloured them in.
They made a snow angel and coloured it with paint.
