Snip, Snip, Snow
This past week Bekah was sick with a virus, so we ended up snuggling on the couch watching Blues Clues numerous times. When she was finally up to it, we read the book Snip, Snip, Snow by Nancy Poydar.
The story is really cute. It's about a little girl who really wants it to snow. She goes to school and begs her teacher to make snowflakes, so they make them out of paper. When they finish making the snowflakes they look outside and are so excited to see that it's finally snowing. At the end, there are directions to make your own paper snowflakes, so Bekah and I did just that.
We actually used coffee filters and just flattened them out a bit.
Bekah needed quite a bit of help folding and cutting the snowflakes out, but the look on her face when we unfolded the filter to reveal the snowflake was priceless!
After we had finished quite a few snowflakes I suggested hanging them up on our living room window. She is so proud of these snowflakes!
