When there's no snow in January...


...Ice will have to do! In our little slice of home daycare heaven, we found a big, clear chunk of ice in the back yard on top of the tarp sheltering the sandbox. We took it out and watched it sparkle in the sun. A and V noticed there were leaves trapped inside the ice.

We all took off our gloves (but not for long) and felt the smooth, slippery surface and talked about how the ice felt.

After deciding the ice was "smooth" and "slippery," we decided to scoot over the ice to see if we could slide.

It was, indeed slippery, and A, T, and V all had fun sliding on the ice . After that, we broke the ice into pieces to investigate further. T noticed that the ice was very clear- in fact, the world looked very interesting through the "window" made of ice!

The ice window proved to be the most interesting part of the ice experience, so we planned a few activities we'd like to try with ice in the near future.

All in all, if you don't have snow, ice is still fun!

See you next time!
