Winter is for Snow is today’s Story Book Advent Christmas Book, Brittany from Love, Play, Learn brings us a fun activity for preschoolers to do as you read this delightful book. The book Winter is for snow is about a brother and a sister in Winter, the brother loves the snow, the sister loves her gadgets and doesn’t like the snow at all. Persuaded to put down the gadget the siblings get dressed and head out into the cold for some sledging fun – eagerly on the brothers side and with grumbles and groans on the sisters. As they head towards the hill the brother slowly changes the perspective of his sister through storytelling a journey in the icy parts of the world and a smile is brought to her face and she LOVES the snow and Winter.
To bring this book alive, Brittany has created a fun Sensory Small World Play in the snow to retell the story and extend on the snow, including her own recipe for “indoor snow” she explains how to set up the bin and the hours of fun that her daughter had retelling Winter is for snow through play in the sensory bin.
