Then JDaniel helped me gather materials he thought would make good snow. We ended up with tiny pieces of a foam sheet, paper towel, napkin, tissue and some felt. After weighing them each in his hand, he declared that the napkin was probably the lightest. I thought it would a good idea to try a few pieces of the other materials to see if they moved around in the plastic storage bag.
Once all the little pieces were in the bag, I showed JDaniel how to close all but a tiny area of the bag. He inserted a drinking straw into the bag to begin blowing the pieces. The blowing pieces in the bag would be our snowstorm.
Snowstorm in a Bag Update!
We are still crossing our fingers for snow this year! Since we haven’t had any fall yet, we made a snowstorm in a bag just as we did when JDaniel was little. I thought you might like to see what the new bag looked like.
Taking time to play and do a science experiment was such fun. We both really enjoy this preschool activity.
