St. Gregory’s before and after school children participated in our outdoor snow shop activity! They used a variety of different moulding tools, pipettes, paint brushes, sponges and cooking utensils to create multi-coloured snow cookies, snow cones, snow cakes and slushies.
The kindergarten children participated in dramatic play by pretending to sell their creations and pretend eat them. The children made observations on the mixture of different colours and how each tool (brush, sponge, pipette) gives a different effect to their snow creations.
The school age children experimented with mixing the food colouring together and creating their own colours! Some children experimented with colour layering and created a multi-coloured slushie. They achieved this by colouring each layer of snow a different colour.
