Well it’s finally happened! Aberdeenshire has succumbed to the snow infection, most schools are feeling under the weather and have had to close. Poor things!
If you have strong feelings about school’s closing then there’s been a bit of a debate going on, in various forums and blogs around the UK. On the Ecademy website I actually liked the suggestion of one psychologist that we should consider the approach taken in some parts of the USA where if a school is closed then then it stays open an extra day in the summer. However I can imagine those who’ve booked holidays at the start not being too amused by this.
If you have not seen the free Winter Wonderland pack on my website, then take a look and download a copy. There’s lots of ideas for having a ball in the snow. I like the headless snowman activity. This involves making a headless snowman. Next you get different hats, sunglasses, etc. and take turns at dressing up, standing behind the snowman and pretending to be the head. It makes for great photos!
Finally, remember we are all snowflakes. Individually we are beautiful, fragile creations. Collectively we can cause havoc!
