Looking out our window, the snow is melting fast.
Better bring some in to play with, it may be the last.
My tot has an infactuation with "things that go".
I am always on a mission to link his interests with learning.
That is how today’s idea came to be.
We brought snow in from outside,and added chunky cars.
I put the snow on large, shallow tote lid.
He used a shovel to bury and find the cars.
We pretended the cars had trouble driving in the snow and the rescue vehicles had to come and help.
After playing, we incorporated books about snow and cars.
-Leave the snow out during naptime, observe the changes afterwards.
