Early Years – Arctic activities

As winter is here… no snow yet in London.. we are trying to offer activities, which will encourage children to think and talk about winter, arctic animals and snow!
Both at school and on Saturday’s sessions I try to find resources, which will help me create some winter scenes.

Messy activities are very good such as shaving foam, cornflour, ice or cotton wool and bubble wrap. Recently I also tried a new idea (taken from Pinterest!) mixing shaving foam and cornflour together and I was really amazed of the texture which came out. You can actually form some snow balls and like with cornflour – play with it for ages.

Another idea is to mix shaving foam with bicarbonate of soda and slowly add some vinegar. Look how your ‘snow’ is expanding!

Have fun creating your winter scenes and don’t forget to add winter stories!!!
