Snow Much Fun in First Grade!!!

We had our P.B.I.S. grade-level celebration on Friday. Since we had been talking and writing about snow all week we decided to create some "snowy" stations for the kids to rotate through. We had 2 stations in my room and 2 in my partner's room. In my room we read "snowy stories" in one station and made "snow" in the second.

We read the story One Snowy Night  and also the The Missing Mitten Mystery in one of the stations.

This was a big favorite with all the kiddos. One scoop of snow powder, 2 oz. of water, and poof....snow!! See the movie below to see it in action. :) 

Across the hall in my partners room they were having "snow" much fun too!

This is a powdered donut, a valentine candy corn, and mini chocolate chips stuck on with white icing. :)

The other station (that I forgot to get pictures of) was face painting. The students could choose a snowman or a snowflake to be painted on their cheek. :)

We really did have a good time! We have our 100th day of school this Wednesday, February 1st, so look for more photos and hopefully videos of the fun we had.


  1. Where did you get your Snow Powder from?
    Looks like a neat thing to do when I teach matter.

  2. Close to where I live, they have something called "The Covered Bridge Festival". It is basically a lot of crafty or flea market type booths set up. I found this amazing stuff 2 years ago and just used it for the first time this year. The amazing thing about this snow is that once the water evaporates, it turns back into the powder so you can totally reuse it again!! I left the box at school but if I can find a website or something on there I will post it tomorrow. :)

  3. Found a website for the snow powder....see link above! :)

  4. That's awesome! Covered Bridge Festival? In Oneonta? ..or is there one somewhere else? I live in Oneonta, so that's what caught my attention =)
