Inside Snow Fun
By Angela Billings
Most children love snow and playing in it. But for those
times it is too cold to play out or for those that do not
get snow I hope you will enjoy these activities.
You will need:
1 Large wide mouth jar
white pipe cleaners put together to look like a snowflake
pencil or pen
Make a snowflake shape with your pipe cleaners. An adult
needs to fill the jar with the boiling water. Place 3
tablespoons of the borax into the water. Stir until it is
dissolved. Loop your snowflake onto the pencil (pencil should
be horizontal laying across the top of the jar) with string
or another pipe cleaner.
Place your snowflake into the jar.
It should be dangling from the pencil, and pencil should be
laying across the width of the jar mouth. Let it sit
overnight and remove the snowflake by lifting the pencil in
the morning. You will have a beautiful crystal snowflake.
White glue in a squeeze bottle
Draw a simple 6 lined snowflake onto the wax paper. Then let
child squeeze glue over the design. Sprinkle glitter over
the glue snowflake. Let it dry. Then gently peel from the
wax paper. You can then hang snowflakes around the room.
You will need three refrigerated biscuits per person and
place them vertically on a piece of foil to resemble a
snowman. You can use pretzel sticks and raisins for the
snowman's arms, eyes, nose, mouth, and buttons. Place the
foil on a baking sheet and bake as directed on the biscuit
