It's Playtime: Wishing for Snow

I live in San Diego, so I often find myself wishing for snow, as do my children.  My son is 4 and has yet to see snow.  Every year there is a short window where we can drive an hour from our home to play in the snow, and it seems, every year we miss out.  We drove north for Thanksgiving and my daughter's big wish was for it to snow, which it did not.  Very disappointing.  So this week, on It's Playtime, I'm featuring some fabulous snow activities...NO SNOW REQUIRED!

Who needs snow to make a snowman?  Not Nurture Store!  They created Snow Playdough and built their own indoor snowman.  The best part?  This snowman won't melt!  

I'm not the only one wishing for snow.  Sassy's Sanity is longing for Snow in the Tropics so they created some with contact paper, glitter, and miscellaneous white items.  The contact paper allowed them to stick the "snow" to the window creating the illusion of a white winter in 85 Fahrenheit.     Sounds like what I need to do!

Pre-school Play had some sensory fun with their Foam Snowmen.  This snow is messy fun with 0 cold fingers!

How about a little science with your snow play?  Hands on: as we grow investigated "icy roads" the safe way: at home with ice, sand, salt, and some trucks.
