The children also try to share their winter clothes with him. They end up feeling cold and he ends up feeling hot. The story ends with everyone going to get ice cream.
JDaniel loved the rhythmic lines and rhymes in this story as well as the text that repeats every time he melts.
What did we do to explore this book?
Observed Snowman Ice Cubes
I had hoped that we would be able to see the snowmen in frozen in the disks, but they were barely visible. I probably should have made the snowmen with blue water and the disks with clear water.
JDaniel didn't seem to care. He had a blast playing with the disks in a large bowl with kitchen utensils. It was fun to watch them melt the more they were played with. This was a great way to explore how solids become liquids.
Made Snowman Soup
Once everything was thoroughly mixed, the soup was placed into containers. I put the snowman soup mix into the decorated bottles. JDaniel used a funnel to add the soup mixture into the now empty coffee creamer container and another bottle we had on hand.
We both added large marshmallows into our bottles periodically. I think I added them half way up and at the top. JDaniel added them randomly through his containers.
