Miss Karen joined us today since Samantha was out of town. We were all expecting a warm, rainy day… but instead we got a little snow storm! We hiked out to the root-ball tree, catching snowflakes on our tongues on the way.
When we got there, we took out our bowls and spoons, and several kids started making snow cakes and soups.
A few others started climbing the root-ball- they found that the snow made for a nice slide on the side of the tree.
Miss Karen and Milo chatted and caught up..
Levi rolled snowballs for all the snow chefs.
Since we all expected rain, we all brought rain clothes! So after playing for a while, we got pretty cold and decided to go inside and warm up. Luckily Miss Karen brought a lot of indoor ideas for us. First we played board games- my group chose UNO.
Miss Karen’s group played a dice race game- each kid had dice and a score board, and each time they rolled they crossed off a box on their score board, according to which number they rolled. It was fun to watch how excited they got to race against themselves!
Finally, we gathered together in the middle of the room, and Miss Karen taught the kids how to square dance while I played the fiddle.
When we were finished we all laid on the floor and made ourselves into the spokes of a wheel. Great day, even though we didn’t get to spend as much time outside as usual!
