Winter Wonderland!

December 7, 2011

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you all had a great week! Now that it’s officially December, it’s a bit colder and windy outside, and the hospital really has a winter feel. The playroom walls are filled with decorations like snowflakes, penguins, and polar bears, and Samantha is wearing a lot of different scrubs with special winter patterns like kittens with mittens. Fishy Kitty wants to get a pair for himself!

I like to make winter decorations, and Max, the Hospital Critterz, and I created a bunch of snowmen, snowwomen, and even snowcritterz to put up around our rooms. They look awesome! Here’s how to make a snowman (you can ask an adult to help you, too!):

1. Cut three circles out of construction paper, each one a little bigger than the next.

2. Glue the circles together so that they look like three circles in a row right on top of each other. (The smallest circle is the snowman’s head. The two other circles are the snowman’s body.)

3. Decorate the snowman however you’d like!

You can add all sorts of things to your snowman. I like to cut out a tiny hat and glue it to the top of the snowman’s head. I also put some glitter on his hat so that he looks fancy! Then I draw a big smile on his face. Max cut out a scarf and earmuffs for his snowman, and the Critterz helped cut out arms for the snowman that looked just like tree branches. Ping & Pong and Day Z Girl were in charge!

We’d love to know about your winter creations and decorations, so please write and tell us! And don’t forget, have a critterrific wintery day!
