This clever space belongs to Daycare Spaces group member
Amy McMonagle from BuggaBee & Me Daycare.
Amy sewed these large snowballs from felt. After the children have stacked their snowman, they can embellish him with snowman features that attach with velcro.
You can also add a snow shovel to your Dramatic Play space this week (such as this adorable space from STA Classroom). Add Cotton Balls, Purchase indoor snowballs, Foam "Snow" balls, or even White Socks, rolled into balls, to the space. The children can practice shoveling the snow.
Items to enhance your space:
Consider adding Construction vehicles, cotton balls, or white pompom's to your construction area. The kids can practice "plowing" their streets.
This snowy road was created by Daycare Spaces group member
Jen Hinton of Stepping Stones Pre-K Academy.
The children can re-create their own snowmen from their favorite stories.
