EYFS (Nursery and Reception) Snow day activities 

Bubbles in the Snow‚Äč

This works best when it is REALLY cold outside, well below freezing point.  Sometimes it can be cold enough for the bubbles to actually freeze and be covered in ice patterns.
Even if it is not that cold, the bubbles will stay for a while on the cold snow.
It is easy to make your own bubble mixture with washing-up liquid and water!

You could have 'races' to see whose bubble lasts the longest without popping.

Snow tracks and snow prints

Be a 'snow detective' and search for tracks in the snow.  Which creature might they belong to?

Or use some everyday objects to make your own prints. 

Winter Mark Making

Make marks / letters / words / numbers / pictures in the snow!  Using sticks or paintbrushes.

Can you use your phonics to help you? 

Story time 

Listen to the story  ‘The Snowy Day’.

Did you enjoy the story? Why?

Which character did you like? Why?

What are you going to do on your snowy day?
