Activities for The Snowy Day

The Snowy Day by Ezra Keats (aff link) was such a fun book to read (and re-read) with our children. The illustrations are so unique (and fun to imitate) and there are many activities that go-along with the book to encourage learning, aside from the hands-on ones: story sequencing, finding shapes, learning about the weather, and much more!
