The Winter Carnival

The Winter Carnival was a special activity that involved all of the children in the school grouped into multi grade teams. The teams moved through eight stations with enticing activities at each stop. Since Mrs Cassidy was in charge of the “Decorate a Cupcake to Look like a Snowman” station, that is the only station that we have pictures for, but the students assured me that they enjoyed all of the stations. Clearly the cupcakes were engrossing!

    I’m Julia and I thought that making snowman cupcakes is great addition to the Winter Carnival! At my school we also celebrate the Winter Carnival and do some fun activities but sadly it’s only for primary grades but we get to help out. some of the activities are:
    1. bowling
    2. we get a break for some hot choclate and cookies
    3. In the library we do some obstacle courses
    We do much more too. What are some things you do for celebrating your Winter Carnival?
    Hope you had an awesome celebrating!

    The Winter Carnival seems like a very creative event! I think that it was great for the children to be placed in multi grade teams. This gave them all an opportunity to meet new students, make new friends, and escape from their comfort zones. The “Decorate a Cupcake to Look Like a Snowman” station looked like it was a winner! I love the picture of the girl with frosting all over her mouth. I know that is what I would have done with my cupcake too!

  4. I really love this idea! I am a new blogger and an elementary education students and I love looking at ideas that I can eventually bring to the classroom! I took a look at your blog and I love it! I am a new follower for sure! 🙂
