Bars of ivory soap, grater, and water.
Have the children grate the bars of soap. Give each child ½ cup of grated soap. Add just enough water so the flakes stick together as the children mold the balls together with their hands.
Let the balls dry and you have a snow ball!
Blue paper, cotton balls, and white paint
Allow children to paint on blue paper using cotton balls. We decided to make snowmen with our "snowballs".
When the temperatures outside are too cold to or you have a child with special needs that is unable to safely be outside in the snow bring the snow inside!
