Are you mesmerized by ️snowflakes? We are! And we could not resist to learn more about these nature’s miracles especially since the snow was falling and Julia was home on a winter break.
Activities you can consider to learn about snowflakes hands-on:
❄️️stamp snowflake design in play dough (we are using DIY wooden double-sided stamps from the Arctic Learning Kit) or use a snowflake cookie cutter (also a part of the Arctic Kit ~ shop here)
❄️️make a paper snowflake craft (from this book)
❄️️make a snowflake from pipe cleaners and pony beads
❄️️make a snowflake from marshmallows and don’t forget the six branches!
We had so much fun reading about the mystical hexagon shape water molecules take form, about the birth of a snowflake and its fleeting life …
Books we are reading:
