Katy and the Big Snow Crafts, Activities, and Resources

We’ve recently begun using the very popular Five in a Row curriculum with our four year old daughter. So far, we are enjoying “rowing” our way through some great classic books. I love that quality children’s literature is paired with so many different varieties of learning activities. I’ve always been very keen on hands on learning. I feel like it works the best for all of my children and incorporating great books is a giant plus for me!

Katy and the Big Snow Crafts, Activities, and Other Resources

Our first row was with the book, Katy and the Big Snow by Virginia Lee Burton. It was perfect timing because though we’d been experiencing a rather mild winter, we’d finally received our first snow. We only received a few inches and it only lasted for a day or so, but my children were super excited to be able to build snowmen and sled around the yard, even if only for a brief period.

Though the Five in a Row manual offers great activities, I wanted to add in a bit more fun to our week. I decided to share the Katy and the Big Snow crafts, activities, and recipes that we used or found with my readers in case anyone else was also going to be rowing along!
