Nursery Snow Day Ideas

Hello to all our nursery children and families,

I hope you are all keeping warm, safe and well during this cold, snowy time.

Here are a few ideas for activities you might want to try while our nursery is closed…

Outside (if it is safe)

Make snow creatures (as a change from snow men!)

Have snow ball throwing challenges (like how far can you throw, make a target to hit, win points)

Make a snow obstacle course

Treasure Hunt – hide a toy for children to find

Write or draw in the snow with sticks


As it is world book day, enjoy some stories together, there are online stories and activities on the website below…

The Big Little Book Corner

You could still dress up as your favourite character and maybe act out your favourite story using funny voices!

Create a snowy scene in a shoebox from recycled materials

Make up your own stories with a snow theme

Create a cosy indoor story den

Have fun and enjoy some time to play together!

Looking forward to hearing all about your snow days,

Miss Watson
