Winter Mural

As we enter a new year, I want to continue to foster a love of nature in my boys. Part of that is helping the boys understand the change of the seasons, especially for little Shane who seems a bit bewildered by the cold weather. To get us started in talking about the seasons, we made a wall mural.

First we painted a blue sky, trees and grass.

Once the paint dried we used wool roving for clouds.

Next, we added snowflakes & animal stickers,
a foil frozen pond & snowmen that Aidan made.

They are so proud of their creation. We will use it in the weeks ahead to talk about what makes snow, how each snowflake is different and what animals do in the winter.
