- I make up bags with the activities for the week, you can pick them up at the Dalton Public Library on Monday’s after 2:00. If you choose to only attend 1 or 2 of the programs during that week, it is fine. You will receive the supplies for all groups. You can find the instructions for the activities here and in your bags. I am encouraging you to do the activities at your convenience with your child/children.
- If I know who is attending and the ages of your children, I can tailor the group a little bit better.
- If your child has had enough on Zoom, I understand and my feelings will not be hurt if you feel like you need to leave the group.
- Please remember to mute yourself if your child is crying or upset or is just babbling. It is really hard for everyone to hear me talking or reading with all of the background noise. If we are doing an open activity you do not have to be muted

All about Ice and Snow
What shape are snowflakes? Are they all the same shape?
Wet snow has more water in it! Perfect for making snowballs and snow people!
Dry snow has more ice in it. The wind blows it all around
Ponds can freeze over when it is very cold for an extended period of time. Never walk on ice unless your adult says it is ok.
Icicles form when snow melts and refreezes.
What do you like to do in the snow?
snowflake life cycle craft
Let’s build a snowflake. Things to know about a snowflake: All snowflakes have 6 sides. They all have a hexagonal structure. Every snowflake is different. All snowflakes are symmetrical
Lets make a snowman:
supplies in your bag 1 ornament with a snowman face already on it. You can either fill the ornament with the with the white paint I gave you or the cotton balls. If you use the paint swirl it around until the ornament is fully covered on the inside. If you use the cotton balls, fill the ornament until you can’t fit anymore cotton balls in it. Did you count how many cotton balls fit in your snowman?
Our last activity is:
Mixing Up Simple 3 Ingredient Puffy Paint
In your bag – shaving cream and glue and blue paper
Combine the glue and shaving cream. Add equal parts of white glue and shaving cream to a large bowl. Mix the two together until they are fully combined in a thick cream.
- Be sure to use a shaving foam, not shaving gel.
- If you’re concerned about the paint sticking to your spoons, you can use chopsticks, popsicle sticks, or even straws to mix the glue and shaving cream together.
- It can be difficult to wash the paint out of containers, so it’s best to use disposable plastic cups that you can toss away when you’re done with the paint.
- Allow the paint to dry completely before hanging or displaying the painting. It usually takes 4 to 6 hours.
