Timed Frosty Reader Puzzle created by Mrs. Silverman who thinks some of you are such excellent puzzle solvers that she threw a timer into this one! Can you beat the clock? If you like that one try the Timed Skier Puzzle, the Timed Snow Angels Puzzle, and one based on Jan Brett's "The Hat". All of the puzzles feature original children's artwork with a winter theme.
Dress Frosty created by Mrs. Knox - Frosty is having a fashion crisis! He can't decide what hat or glasses to where. In fact, he can't even decide what expression he wants on his face! Drag and drop different elements onto Frosty with your mouse until he looks "cool"! - This game requires the Macromedia Flash Player (see game for link to download)
Dress Frostina created by Mrs. Silverman - Frostina is Frosty's sister. Mix and match some of her outfits by dragging the pictures with your mouse. You may wonder why there is a Mets cap. Frostina is a Mets fan and thinks about her team even in the winter! It was difficult to get a custom fit for Frostina since her body shape is a little unusual. You can also add a little scenery to this picture. This game requires Microsoft Internet Explorer
