The First Signs of Winter!

Although I don't welcome Winter as I would a long lost friend, I take comfort in the exceptional experiences that the children engage in during this season. A light dusting of snow in the playground, prompted these boys to make the first snowman of winter.


  1. Hi, new follower here! I'm curious, did you set out a provocation for the snowman?

  2. No, the children are comfortable with loose materials. As soon as the snow starting falling, they asked to make this snowman.

  3. The snowman is lovely!

    I'm a preschool yoga & creative movement teacher currently located in NYC. I write a blog for parents/preschool teachers, as I believe that bits of guided movement are essential throughout the learning day, especially to give children self-regulation and self-care tools as they go forward into an increasingly sedentary society.

    You and your students may enjoy trying out this free winter yoga/creative movement lesson about what animals do in the cold season:

    Have fun! If you have any comments (or your students do) please feel free to leave them in the comments below the lesson.
