It's snowing at the Brigham City Library!
We read a lot of fun books about winter and snow, Snowy, Blowy Winter by Bob Raczka, Waiting for Winter by Sebastian Meschenmoser, Snow by Cynthia Rylant, A Kitten Tale by Eric Rohmann, and my personal favorite is Dream Snow by Eric Carle.
Originally I had planned to make a snowflake ornament using wooden craft sticks then gluing on the gems and glitter. I was supposed to get 150 sticks painted but the weather was never warm enough and I didn't get them painted earlier in November when the weather was nicer. So at the last minute I decided on snowflake crowns, which were beautiful and easy since I have a snowflake pattern for our die cut machine. I had a bit of trouble finding the right kind of glitter. I wanted some that was really white and since my shopping options here in town are very limited I had to travel 30 minutes to Logan to the Michael's store to get what I wanted. Of course, the only day I had to get there was on Veteran's Day, when I had a day off. Our Walmart only had white glitter in a kit, and I didn't want to buy and entire kit just to use one color because like I said I usually avoid the messy sparkly stuff. I hope our janitor can get it all up with the vacuum!
Next week: Snowmen
