Winter Day Play by Nancy F. Castaldo
Lots of crafts and activities to keep little ones busy during the long cold winter - over 70 suggestions in this book. The author shares many different ways to enjoy a beautiful snow day such as the making a snow angel or building snow castles. There are plenty of winter games included as well - "Basket Snow Ball", "Knock 'Em Over", and the "Snow Snake Game". A kids' favorite is called "Hoops" which is a simple snowball target game using a hula hoop and a pinecone. Indoor activities are just as fun. Craft projects, party ideas, and science experiments can be found integrated throughout the book with each creative winter play idea. For instance, kids can try snow painting, making their own snow shoes, or learning how to build the perfect snowman. Oneof the educational experiments is studying a snowflake, which includes a melting study.
