The snow may have melted but that won’t stop us building a snowman! Have a look in your house, can you find anything to create your own snowman? Cotton wool pads are great for his body, I wonder what you can find to make his eyes and nose…
Remember to send us in a photo of your snowmen if you can to firstname.lastname@example.org
The temperature is due to be -1 degrees tonight, the perfect temperature to try and make some ice outside! Place water (and whatever items you want to freeze) into a tub and add a piece of string. Leave this outdoors all night and see what happens…
Was it cold enough overnight? If not you can try again when the weather is due to be below zero degrees!
Have you still got some sticks from your walk? Why not make a lovely winter tree picture!
If you don’t have glue at home, no problem! Why not use your sticks to make a winter transient art picture instead. Have a look around the house maybe you could use some Christmas tree decorations or tinsel to add some sparkle to your picture. We would love to see your masterpieces, send us a photo in if you can!
Can you make your own stickman with the sticks you found on your walk? Once you have made him place him in a big bowl, pour water over him and put him in the freezer. What do you think will happen to the water? How long does the water take to freeze?
Stickman is stuck in the ice! Can you help free him so he can return to the family tree? Explore the different properties of ice, how does it feel? Is it hot or cold? How are you going to free him?
What about making up a new verse for the book. What happened to stickman, why is he covered in ice? Maybe he went for a swim or fell in a puddle..
We are sad we have not got to do all our usual graduation activities but we have made you a special video. The whole nursery team sends a big virtual hug and wishes you all good luck! Have a fantastic summer! ❤️
