Winter Fun

A couple weeks ago, our “Little Saints Pre-School” theme was “Winter Fun.” Here is a glimpse at a few of the fun things we did:


We read some of our favorite books about snow:

Winter Dessert Sculptures

Making Snowflakes

The girls love using scissors…

Here is what happens when momma leaves the room for a second and a scissor happy little girl cuts too much!

Ah! That’s better!

I thought I took a picture of the door covered in snowflakes, but I guess I didn’t… Oh well!
I wonder if they are ready for these??
Decorating Snowflakes

These are part of the Snowy Day Lapbook from Homeschool Share.
(which doesn’t seem so be working right now)

I wanted to make this Snowman Dessert, but my kiddos had had enough sugar as it was! The girls did have fun with this Virtual Snowman.

Last week the girls continued the theme and worked on lapbooks. Chiquita is doing a simple Snow Lapbook and Twinkle Toes is making one based on The Snowy Day.

    You have such great ideas I will be back often for inspiration!

    With three little ones, 7 and under, I’m still trying how to figure out the “creative lessons” and orderly (notice I didn’t say “clean”) home… any ideas????

    I seem to be barely keeping my head above water….

    fun indeed! what a neat idea-the preschool group. i don’t do enough for my little guy with other kids. this has sparked some inspiration.

    We did the snowman dessert instead of the snowscapes!! (because of the reason you didn’t do the snowmen!)

    I love the dog house thing….uh, wishful dog wanter, huh?

    Come on mom, can’t you get her a dog?

    Our Little Saints has slowed down, but we did do “Looby Loo” a lot this past week! I think we are done with the snow stuff and ready to move on. We kind of stretched that unit on for the past month!

    Love the snow idea. Man…how do they make all that yummy stuff without eating it and getting sick!

  8. Amy

    That looks like to much fun!!

    Thanks everyone!

    Angel ~ It is tough, though I think as it becomes a part of your routine, it seems to get easier… Although, that probably doesn’t help much??

    Christine ~ I didn’t say they didn’t eat any!! That afternoon was CRAZY after my children eating way too much sugar!! This was probably a one time only project! 😉

    Oh, fun! I’ve got to let the kids make snowflakes soon. They’ll enjoy it. Thanks for the reminder!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
