Whether you’re looking at it or wishing for it, there’s something magical about snow.  Here are a few of our favorite musical ideas and fun snow-themed crafts that you can enjoy with your child.

Try indoor skating!

Skating indoors is easy and fun.  All you need is a pair of paper plates – one set per skater – and some skating music.  You may remember this activity from Kindermusik class. You can even decorate the top side of your skates if you like.  Music that’s not too fast or too slow is ideal.  (Think something like the Blue Danube Waltz…)  Push the furniture out of the way and have skate away!

Create your own charming Chalky Snow Art

For this art project, all you need is ½ cup of water, ½ cup of liquid laundry starch, and chalk.  First, mix the water and starch together.  Brush it over a piece of dark colored heavy paper (or even something like cardboard).  Next, draw on the wet paper with the chalk.  If the end of the chalk gets sticky before you are finished, simply scrape it off and keep drawing.

Sing, sing, sing and move, move, move!

You know that familiar childhood song, “If You’re Happy and You Know It”?  You’re sure to get lots of giggles by trying all kinds of snow-related movements:

If you’re happy and you know it…

Stomp in the snow
Slide on the ice
Catch the snowflakes
Clap your mittens
Roll in the snow

And when you’re all done enjoying the magic of snow, why not cuddle up for some hot chocolate?
