Turn Socks into Snowmen

 

Start with a white tube sock. Put a little sand in the bottom to give it weight. (If you wrap the sand in plastic wrap, it won't leak through the sock.) Stuff the sock with polyester fiberfill. Tie yarn around sections to make the two parts of the body and the head. The top of the sock can flip inside out to make a hat. Using white thread and a needle, lightly stitch each section to the one above it, closing the sock a little over the yarn ties. This helps it to stand. Add a face, buttons, a hat, scarf, broom or whatever you like using scrap pieces of fabric, beads, pom poms, etc.


Make a Book-Reading Tent

 

Use chairs, tables, sheets, blankets, pillows and books to make a comfortable tent. (This is a great place to play when it's cold outside.) Bring a stack of books into your tent. Then get cozy and read them. Share the stories with a buddy, a doll or a teddy bear.

A selection of old clothes, hats, scarves, pieces of fabric, towels, pillowcases and other simple things are the best for playing "Dress-Up" and "Let's Pretend"

 

First Day of Winter

 

Make a Snowman Even if You Have to Use Marshmallows to do it!

No Snow? Well then, we suggest the marshmallow method! Use a little powdered sugar mixed with milk to make some "glue" and glue marshmallows together. If you want them to remain edible, decorate them with candy sprinkles, small candies or decorator icing. If they are for show only, you can use markers, toothpicks, beads, ribbon, paint, construction paper, craft foam pieces or even scraps of yarn or fabric to turn your marshmallows into snowmen and women.


Play in the snow if you have some available.

Toss Your Socks and Mittens

Roll some socks and/or mittens into balls and wrap a string or ribbon around them. Leave a tail of string that is several feet long. Place a laundry basket some distance away and try to toll your socks and mittens into the basket. Use the string to pull them back so you can try again. 

Keep score in any way you choose, or not at all. Try using different colors and giving a different point value to each color of socks or mittens. Smaller children can toss from close to the basket, while older children have a longer distance to throw. If you get tired of tossing socks, try this with cotton balls or balloons. Now that's a challenge for any age.
