Stacy at Share & Remember posted about some music and movement activities she did with the preschoolers in her day care related to snow.
She kindly included a printable version of the rhyme and songs they used, as well as her idea for making the cutest snowflake sticks.
Since Wednesday was my first Music & Movement session since November, I wanted to make it special. Her idea spun off into one of the most fun classes I've held since I began offering Music & Movement as a program in October.
To attach them to the jumbo craft stick that I used for a handle, I used the filament tape we use to tape the plastic dust jacket covers to books.
I found some "fun fur" yarn at the Wal's mart (the deep sea stripes and white) and used a hole punch to make three holes on the top of each snowflake. I tied on small pieces of the fur to decorate. I did not have as much time as I would have liked to make these, so I will go back and add on more fur to make them more full like Stacy's were. I was surprised how much fun fur was in each bundle! I made 40 of these and probably will not need more than one bundle of each color.
To read more about how I used these in my Music & Movement class, see this post.
