Happy snow day! That seems to be applicable in pretty much every place I can think of right now….when even Florida gets snow, you know it’s a cold winter! To make the best of it, I’ve put together these fantastic crafts and activities to go with the book Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost.
I like the version of the poem in this book from Susan Jeffers; the illustrations are so pretty and there’s a new animal or two hiding in the pictures, to discover on every page.
These ideas I’ve curated for you are in no particular order. Enjoy!
