Snowflake Sight Words
Once our coffee filter snowflakes were done, we placed them all out on the table. So pretty! They would be a great addition to the window at this point…but we went a step further and added a learning component.
I used a blue washable marker to write out some of Big Sister’s sight words in the center of each snowflake. She had fun trying to figure out what word I was writing on each snowflake.
Next came the fun part! I filled a spray bottle with a little water and added a few drops of blue food coloring. A quick shake of the bottle and the color was all mixed up. Big Sister and Baby Girl got busy spraying each snowflake. I would call out a word and Big Sister sprayed. Baby Girl just sprayed! As the water hit the coffee filters, the letters of the sight words quickly went away, but a nice blue shade remained. Once all of the coffee filter snowflakes were soaked, we laid them out on cookie drying racks to dry.
Our coffee filters are now decorating the window and look great from the inside and the outside of the house!
