Winter Wednesday: Finding Winter Colors

We are full force into winter weather, cold, snow, freeing rain, icy roads and sidewalks, blustery winds, and more cold…..ick!!! 

But since we are participating in the Winter Wednesday hosted by Barb at Handbook of Nature Study, we are finding some joy in what winter has to offer!  You can read about Barb’s Winter Wednesday challenges here.

Big Ladybug, Little Ladybug, and I went out while Little Lizard was taking his nap. It was only 23 degrees, but the sun was shining so it made it seem a little warmer.  I had taken some great pictures, but accidently deleted the whole folder from my camera!  So Big Ladybug and I went out again a little later and did some quick retakes.


We ended up having a great time!  The girls were running around everywhere having fun throwing snow.

I borrowed my sister’s idea of using the color word cards.  You can check out the fun they had here.






Here is the notebook page that Big Ladybug made.  Somehow her drawings look much more inviting!


I can say I was surprised about how easy it was to find all of these colors.  We had a great time outside and are looking forward to more Winter Wednesday challenges!


  1. It looks like you all had fun though....loving the color word idea more and more. That is a wonderfully done notebook page!

    I am so glad you were able to go outdoors even for a little bit in your cold temps. Thanks for sharing your encouraging post with the OHC.
