Guest Post: Bring the Snow Inside!

It has been really cold here lately. And when I say cold, I mean COLD!!! There have been some mornings this past week when my kids go to the bus stop at 8:30, and it’s below zero! It’s too cold to go outside and enjoy all the snow we have in our yard so I was wondering how to help my kids enjoy it when I remembered this idea Lauren shared a bit ago. I thought it was so good that I’d share it with all of you!

One of our favorite things to do when it’s too cold to play outside is to bring the snow inside! It’s much more comfortable, and supplies are at your fingertips!

Pile a few scoopfuls on a cookie sheet.

Build a snowman (we found a spray bottle to be helpful for packing the snow) and decorate it with whatever you’ve got on hand. Buttons, dry beans or seeds, mittens, straws, toothpicks, fruits and veggies (gotta have the carrot nose), hard candy, or whatever your little one can dream up!

Freeze your creation to show Dad when he gets home!

If you are feeling brave, get out the food coloring for some fun. Try making rainbow snow, then stir it up for a tie-dyed look.

The possibilities are endless!

Thanx for the fun idea, Lauren! A perfect activity for my toddler today!
