Welcome back to the 5 after 5! After a long week come and share your list of 5! Each week we will have a new topic for the following Saturday! So think of your great 5 After 5 List and come link up with us! This week is 5 Ways to Enjoy Winter!
We are not big outdoor winter people…or I should say I am not! My daughter would love to play in the snow more and I do make it a point to do it a few times during the winter months. This year it has been cold but not a lot of snow so far.
5 Ways to Enjoy Winter
Books and Blankets
You can’t go wrong with a cozy spot to curl up with a good book and blanket! We read lot around here. Lots of picture books, poetry, bible and of course I fit in one of my books from my reading list!
Arts and Crafts
Because we spend more time inside in the winter we do more crafts, coloring, painting and sensory bins. It helps the days go by more smoothly!
Turn up the music and start moving! The kiddos have so much energy and I just don’t go outside when it soooo cold! Sooo we crank up the songs and get out all the wiggles. We play dance freeze, Red Light Green Light and be lots of different animals. We love Wee Sing Animals CD.
Who doesn’t love homemade bread! We make lots of homemade bread now as we soak our flours and eat a more organic foods. Turn on the over to warm up the house and soon the fresh smell of bread baking…so nice in the winter time.
Watch the snow falling
I do enjoy watching fresh snow fall…from inside my warm house. It is beautiful!
