The day before the snow came the girls and I had a great time with the sidewalk chalk. They drew rainbows, suns and shapes while I wrote out the whole alphabet. Once the alphabet was written I showed the girls how we could sing or say the song while we hopped along on the letters! They were both eager to try it out.
Then, we (mostly the girls!) were so excited the to see that the alphabet was still there when we shoveled the snow away!
Since I was the one doing the shoveling and all bundled up I didn't get the camera to take pictures of them in their snow suits jumping on the letters. But I came out later to at least capture the letters partially covered with the snow. They had a blast once again jumping along the letters and it was great to see them saying the letters together as they jumped.
This week's Feature -
This was a tough one. There were 36 entries that were all great and so many wonderful new ideas. But one mom takes the prize for being my hero of creativity! I can just hear her voice, I can feel her eagerness to give her child what she wants and the whole thing is just hilarious! But in the end it is an AWESOME idea and an amazing job of one mom to get creative with her kids outdoors. So head over to Sense of Wonder to see how you can make a snowman in Texas!
