HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Welcome to my first post of 2014. I am hoping to get back to blogging on a regular basis this year. And to get started, I have a:
BLAST FROM THE PAST!
I love January because that means Wintertime! And, even though I now live in Florida, I love sharing snow books and learning activities with my storytime friends. One of my favorite flannels for the snow theme is this one ~
These snowflakes were made from dark blue felt circles, glittery white snowflake shapes, and ~ just to jazz them up a little ~ I added a few clear jewels that I had laying around. I will try to get a better picture later so you can see how sparkly they are.
I have made these snowflakes before. But I love them so much AND they are so easy to make that I couldn't resist a different version. Before I made them out of paper. Here they are:
In my past post, Activity: Five Little Snowflakes, you will find several ideas for using these snowflakes during your storytimes and I shared a couple of rhymes ~ one is a count-up rhyme and the other is a count-down rhyme. Great to use together!
I did not create these beautiful snowflakes on my own! I want to give a shout out to one of my favorite on-line friends, Library Quine! She actually created these awesome snowflakes and shared the template on her blog, Loons and Quines @Librarytime. Be sure to click on over for her snowflake post and the template. I highly recommend exploring the rest of her blog while you are there. It is a wonderful resource!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have as much snow fun as I will be having this January!
