Book Description

Sept. 1 2001
Winter Day Play! puts the fun back into cold, snowy days for teachers and young children. Instead of the same old snow angels, they can try a Layer Up Relay that will get them bundled up fast, Snow Painting with spray bottles filled with food coloring, and making Snow Cream with fresh fallen snow. Kids will delight in building a Japanese Snow Cottage or playing the Native American Snow Snake Game. More than 70 activities will keep kids busy learning, exploring, and having fun all winter long. When it is just too cold to go outside, they’ll make Eskimo Yo-Yos, have a Marshmallow Sculpture Contest, or make a Snowflake Mobile. Parents and teachers can surprise kids with a Topsy-Turvy party, a Hawaiian luau, or a Winter Picnic. Whether in a group or by themselves, kids will find things to do inside or outside, wherever they live.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

reS-Gr 3-Whether the snowfall is light or heavy or the day is just so blustery that indoors seems better than out, there is something for children to enjoy among the more than 70 suggestions in this book. Creative possibilities include building a Japanese snow cottage (kamakura), fashioning a snow sculpture, or painting on snow with food coloring. Basic science projects involve observing and studying snowflakes and tracking and measuring snow prints. "Arctic Adventures" explores Inuit culture. Party ideas range from a teddy-bear sleepover to activities for celebrating the Chinese New Year. Recipes are included as well. A potpourri of simple ideas to fill the long winter days.

5.0 out of 5 stars No More Boredom! Nov. 16 2001
Format:Paperback
Parents who dread the winter months because there's just nothing for the kids to do outside, fear no more! Nancy F. Castaldo, author of Rainy Day Play!, brings to light plenty of creative winter games and activities, as well as touching on some old favorites.
While several activities in this book have been around for years, such as the snow angel and building snow castles, the author shows us many different ways to enjoy a wonderful snowy day.
There are plenty of winter games as well, including "Basket Snow Ball", "Knock 'Em Over", and the "Snow Snake Game". One of my favorites is called "Hoops" which is a simple snowball target game using a hula hoop and a pinecone.
From the pages of "Winter Day Play", kids can discover snow painting, make their own snow shoes, or learn how to build that perfect snowman. Fun ideas include studying real snowflakes or doing a melting study, or why not create your own paper ones.
Another fun winter project for kids is to create a "Bird Buffet Tree". The author explains how to recycle your Christmas tree by decorating it outside with homemade bird treats. Your feathered friends will love this Christmas present!
Amongst the games and activities you will find warming recipes and fun things to do indoors as well. So the next time the snow falls, pull out this book and be prepared to have a blast!
