i told my preschool classes i would post photos of the fire we made inside an “igloo” in our yard two winters ago.

we gathered the snow from around the yard (under trees where it hadn’t melted:  a corner of the lean-to roof still in shade, under the trampoline…), dropped it all into a big mound,

dug out a hole with a hoe,

used the handle to make a “chimney” vent,

had sally bring us the fire starters,
and built. a. fire.
it didn’t melt!
it was magical.
then we came out after supper with blankets and jammies.


if we get enough snow at preschool, we’ll do it!  you can at home, too!
