Beat the Winter Homeschool Blues

Don’t let winter keep your kids from having fun and learning. Here are some ideas for beating the winter homeschool blues.

  • Make a snowflake journal. Take the kids outside with a magnifying glass to examine snowflakes. Then, have the kids draw and cut snowflakes.
  • Make torn paper snow pictures. It is easy and mess free. Then, have the kids write about their picture.
  • Make a “snow” themed snack, maybe cookies covered with white icing.
  • Make shaving cream snow pictures.
  • Whip up some whipped snow.
  • Make snow ice cream--this was my favorite as a child.
  • Make snow angels and use food coloring to make snow pictures outside.
  • Make your own snow globe.
  • Make snow sculptures using different size buckets or pails.
  • Melt snow in a pan as you talk about different states of water.
