Deliver some hot soup to granny who’s feeling cold.
Fun music (find in Media tab or instructions below).
Speaker for music.
Children sit in a circle.
It’s winter now and it’s very cold. Brrr! And look outside, it’s starting to snow.
Ring ring! The telephone! Pick up the phone.
It’s granny. Hello granny! She says she’s very cold in her home. What can we bring her to warm her up?
Take suggestions from the children – and decide to take her some hot soup.
The middle of the circle becomes a large cooking pot. Together the class will make soup.
Take children’s suggestions for what ingredients they should throw in.
Cook the soup all together, adding ingredients, stirring, etc.
Taste the soup all together then put it in a flask to take to Granny’s.
But what do we need to put on before we leave the house?
Take the children’s suggestions, and put on winter clothes (hat, scarf, gloves, etc.)
Right, we’re all ready. Let’s walk to Granny’s. Wow! Look at all the snow! Let’s have a snowball fight.
Play Fun music (below).
Children move around the space rolling balls of snow and throwing them at each other.
Make it clear that they should not touch anyone during this activity.
That was fun. Now let’s build a snowman.
Each child makes their own imaginary snowman. Guide them through it: big ball for the legs, medium ball for the body, small ball for the head, stones for the eyes and mouth, and a carrot for the nose.
Take suggestions from the children about what needs to happen next as you go along.
But wait! What are we forgetting? What do we need to do?
Walk to Granny’s house.
Knock on her door, and take the soup up to her bedroom. She’s so happy! Give her a big hug and eat the soup together.
