A Snow Table

What does one do when it is too cold to take the children out but the snow beckons? Bring the snow into the classroom!

The water table in our classroom has looked a little different for the last couple of weeks. Children have been molding and constructing with the snow we have brought in once the morning routine has been completed. Creativity has abounded with the cold, white medium.

Some children have experimented with colours and splashed them on the pristine snow to make the water table look even more different.

What would you do if you had the opportunity to play at the snow table?

  1. I really don’t know dear Colline 🙂 in the photographs, all snowy things seem so nice to me, but to be out… it is snowing right now but of course not as in there… You are amazing. Thank you dear, have a nice day, love, nia


  2. What a novel way to take ‘snow and make a snowman’ … as opposed to having lemons, which doesn’t appear to be the problem on hand, if you know what I mean. Either way, I’d be willing to bet the kids had a ball playing in the snow — inside. You are a smart cookie, Colleen.

  3. If we had a snow table we would definitely have some snow ball fights…do they allow those at school? I think an ice cream scoop and dishes would be fun for pretend play too. I know when we lived in KS I would use a small strainer as a snow ball launcher with our then 4 year old son. Fun memories! Sweet pics!
