Snow at Easter 2008  


Cute furry bear



Snow at Easter?

Sophie got up early this morning - she was quite excited because today is Easter Sunday. Being a greedy bear, Sophie knows that Easter Sunday is when you get to open your Easter eggs...

Sophie's Grandma has been down to visit her. She left two Easter Eggs - one for Sophie and one for Mrs Keen.

Sophie and the Tiger are guarding them to make sure they don't get eaten!

Who will stop Sophie eating them I wonder?



While Sophie was looking out of the window, it started to rain. Then, when she looked closer she realised it was actually snowing!

"Cool - Snow!", shouted Sophie and ran off to play.

Snow balls on the kitchen window at Easter 2008


Mrs Keen looked out of her kitchen window. SPLAT - something hit the window. SPLAT, SPLAT - two more snowballs hit the window...

She looked to see who was throwing snowballs but couldn't see anyone.



"Hmmm," Mrs Keen said, "I wonder what made these tracks in the snow. They look just like paw prints.."

Tiger said, "They aren't tiger prints - I like the warm!"

Sarah Bear said, "They are much too big for me, I only have small paws."

Who do you think likes the snow and has big paws?

I wonder who it could have been - can you guess?

Sophie was keeping very quiet and watching her Easter Egg...





Parent's Note

Easter came early this year and coincided with a late snow. The snow was quite short but long enough for some quick fun! If you want to see more then try the BBC News page.
