There comes a time in every snowman’s life that they must melt…but it’s sometimes sad just the same! It’s sweet that Sadie is trying to prom the snowman back up! Actually the biggest snowman that has ever been built was actually a snowwoman! Click on the image below, or click here, to open the coloring page, then download, print, and start coloring!
Sleds have been around for a long time! The Inuit people (we used to call them Eskimos but they prefer Inuit) made sleds out of whale bones – but mostly sleds are made out of wood or metal or plastic. Of course, you can sled down a snowy hill on top of just about anything flat, like a big piece of cardboard or a cookie tray! The sled Sophie and Sadie are on looks like it’s plastic to me! Click […]
Most of the time we see icicles on houses – but they are so beautiful when they grow on trees! And they are fun to touch and hold, but you have to be careful because they can be very heavy! Icicles grow when it’s freezing cold and sunny. The sunlight melts the ice and snow – and it starts to drip. But then the freezing cold air makes it turn into ice again. Every drip that turns to ice adds […]
Some of our friends have lots of snowflakes piled outside – and other friends are in shorts and t-shirts at the beach! Either way, it’s fun to draw snowflakes. Every snowflake is different, so you can’t go wrong! Click on the image below, or click here, to open the coloring page, then download, print, and start coloring!
What could be more fun than decorating cupcakes?! – well, maybe eating them! Did you know that it wasn’t until 150 years after cupcakes were invented that someone thought to put frosting on them. I wonder what took them so long? Click on the image below, or click here, to open the coloring page, then download, print, and start coloring!
I had a feeling that gymnastics was going to be Sophie’s favorite Olympic sport – but I didn’t guess that she was going to try the vault first! But after watching Simone Biles on the vault during the 2016 Olympics, I can understand why she’d want to! I might suggest she starts with some somersaults on the floor! The vault is also called a horse – maybe because there is a sport in the horse-riding world where athletes do gymnastics […]
Well, it looks like Sadie has figured out an Olympic sport that works well for having one frond (cactus arm) – the shot put! She was super excited that Michelle Carter was the first woman in the US to win a gold medal in shot put in the Olympics. I haven’t told her how heavy the actual shot puts are…the women’s shot (the ball is called the shot) weighs 8.8 pounds (4kg) and men’s shot weighs 16 pounds (7kg) – […]
Looks like Sophie and Sadie are getting into the Olympic spirit! What do you think their favorite sport is to watch? Every flag in the world has at least one of the colors (blue, yellow, black, green, and red) of the Olympic rings. (Actually there are six colors – can you guess what the sixth color is?! – It’s the white in the background!) The reason there are 5 rings is to show 5 of the continents that most people […]
Looks like Sophie and Sadie are having some fun riding around on the tractor! The word tractor comes from the Latin word ‘to pull!’ I guess that makes sense. Usually tractors are carrying bigger things than a little girl cactus! Can you imagine a tractor that is so big it has 12 tires – and the tires are as big as a grown up person!? Crazy!
