First, I made these letter search water bottles. I'm pretty sure no one reading this is a stranger to this idea, but in case you are...
1. Find some empty bottles.
2. Fill them with a small item of your choice. (Sand, rice, etc.)
3. Add other miscellaneous items. (I added beads and glitter)
4. Add your snowflakes. I used small foam snowflakes I wrote letters on.
5. Hot glue your lid on and voila!

I'm going to place this activity in our writing area and students can search through the bottles to find letters. When they find them they can write them down on the snowflake recording sheet below. You can download the sheet for free!

As far as making your snowflakes, I found winter foam kits/accessories on clearance at Micheal's for 70% off. No joke, I bought some of those $7.99 kits for only $2.39 a piece! These foam projects are classroom gold in my mind.
Is anyone else wishing they could get access to a laminator larger than their home one today?! (I'm sure those of you who have to work today do not wish you could access your school laminator!) I have printed out so much over break and would love to have it all laminated and cut! Ugh!
