Preschool Storytime! :)

Students were able to use snow and colored water to experiment what happens when colors mix. The students created snow pies, rainbows, ice cream, and snowmen. Afterwards, the students came back to carpet, shared what they created and what they learned about snow. One student decided to wear his mittens!
