Snow Day!

We finally got a bit of snow! Not much. Just enough to ruin our great plans today. I’m stuck in the house with these three all day…So whats a mom to do?! Pull out all her tricks…

Kinley woke up ready to head out. She loves playing in the snow. I am so thankful Addalyn and Ruby do not! This mama can gather together some Tupperware and utensils and sit and relax in the nice warm house.

Ruby likes to sit and eat the snow and Addalyn made a snow cake lol. Kinley shoveled the snow and then threw it at the window at them.

We did the normal math and reading for the day and decided to mix things up for science. Kinley learned about the lifecycle of a snowman. We’ve talked a lot about solid, liquid, and gas but this was an awesome experiment to demonstrate gas.

We started off with building a snowman and talking about how he was a solid.

She turned the burner on and our ‘little friend’ as she called him quickly became a liquid.

She then tried to catch him in the gas stage before he disappeared. Poof. Our little friend went from solid to a liquid and disappeared as a gas.

They were a bit burned out from painting pictures so I pulled out the tempera paint and dish soap and make window paint. All you do is add a squeeze of dish soap to a little bowl of tempera paint and Voila! Window paint!
