After reading my friend, Brittney's
, blog I decided to "copy" her. She decided to pick a day each month to have a "theme" day. Each "theme" day included crafts to do, books to read, and special snacks/foods to eat that all go along with the theme. January's theme was Snowmen, however, as you can see we are a little late and did our January theme in February. But, we will still get our February theme (hearts and love) in, hopefully next Saturday. Valentine's Day-what a perfect day! Anyway, today we woke up and had snowmen pancakes, which the girls thought were pretty cool! Then we made paper snowflakes. Camden LOVES to use the scissors and cut, so this was probably her favorite activity!
Then, on to drawing a snowman and decorating the paper with cotton balls. Anything involving glue is always a big hit!!
Time to read some "snow" books...Frosty the Snowman
, and Baby Donald makes a Snowfriend
Check out our snowman we made with spice containers, cotton balls, googly eyes, buttons and construction paper.
One of the most fun activities was a snowball fight using cotton balls. Camden, Claire, Daddy and even Mommy had a blast throwing snowballs at each other!
What a special lunch treat..snowman sandwiches!
We also made cupcakes and made them into a snowman family. The best part...eating the cupcakes!
