Two of the most common sources of joy are nature and bright colors. Even though winter can feel like a drab time, the gorgeous skies of winter sunsets offer both! Take time to slow down and behold the winter sky. Then, welcome kids to use colorful, frozen “pops” and a plain bedsheet or cloth to create their very own gorgeous winter sky.
We often rush about and miss the amazing, colorful backdrop nature provides us in the sky—particularly in the winter season. Taking time to slow down and notice the sky not only connects us to the natural world, it exposes the world's immense beauty and sparks joy.
This kind of open-ended chance to transform ice and cloth into a sky also supports kids in using multiple senses, thinking creatively, collaborating, and persisting through challenges—all skills kids need to thrive!
