#56 - Snow is my Favorite and my Best by Lauren Child

Lola finally gets her wish when she looks out the window and it's snowing. "It's all gone extremely white!" she says. Lola wishes for an endless season of snow. She just loves making snow angels, sledding, and building snow dogs and even a snow kennel. The next day as the snow sadly melts away, Charlie helps Lola think about all the things she couldn't do if it were snowy all the time.

Suggested Activity: Frozen Bubbles

This is an activity for a cold, cold (below freezing) day when there is no wind in the air. Start by making a strong bubble solution. Mix 1/2 cup soap powder, 1/2 cup sugar, and 3 cups hot water. (This mixture will help the bubbles last longer.) Take the bubble solution and a bubble wand outside. Blow a bubble, and catch it on the wand. Let the bubble sit resting on the wand in the cold air. In the below-freezing chill, the bubble will soon freeze into a fragile crystal ball.
