Our first snow for the winter left several inches of snow on the ground. While the snow if fresh we bundle up and go outside to do a little math and letter writing. We guess how many inches of snow is on the ground. Everyone has their own opinion of the number of inches of snow. Using the rulers, we measure the snow.
In the clean and smooth snow, letters are written. First an “A” is made.
Then an “O”. Some children make their own letters and toddlers imitate the preschoolers and make their own designs.
It’s not long before the once clear white writing pad of snow has little boot prints and letters written all over it.
What a simple activity! So, bundle up and have fun! What activities are you doing in the snow?
