An Snow Day Science/Nature Study Idea Video

So, we have been having an unusual amount of snow this year. It is snowing again today.

I can't remember where, but I had read awhile ago about catching and looking at snowflakes with a magnifying glass and have been wanting to try it ever since. So today I did.

My mom helped me to put together a video showing what I did. Here's hoping it will snow wherever you are so you can try it!

Feel free to leave me a comment. I'd love to hear about your experiences catching and studying snowflakes.

Oh, how I would love to do that but our last snow was Dec. 2004. Maybe next year I'll go on a snow vacation.

Wow! That would be sooo neat to do. I wish I would have known about this before our last of the season came. I MUST remember this for next snow season.

And what a neat magnifier you have there. :o)
