Day 11: The Snowy Day

We completed Day 11 several days ago, but throw in a few class Christmas parties and an 8-year-old birthday party...and you get a great dose of procrastination!
This is a simple activity to set up, which is great for the last few days before Christmas.  All you need is the book, a pan, and sugar!  I have an entire canister of it that I'm trying to get rid of so I am not tempted in the new year!
First, we read the book.

I gave each child a baking pan and about a 1/2 cup of granulated sugar.  We were blessed with a 50 degree day to play on our porch, but you could easily do this at the kitchen table or on the tile floor.  

Probably the only "snow" we will see falling before Christmas this year.
After exploring the sugar, I gave Zaven a wooden skewer to write his sight words.
If you have used up all your sugar in your house, you could use salt.  But you probably won't get a cute picture of your little one with sugar lips :)

Do you want to see the other days in the 12 Days of Christmas?  Go here.
