Today was an unexpected snow day. The forecast yesterday did call for 1-2 inches of snow over night but I totally didn’t expect that to hinder school today. Did you have to break out the snow blower or shovel where you are?
There are plenty of indoor winter activities I could do with my kids but good snow doesn’t come around here very often. With my original plans for the day taking a slight turn I decided to go play out in the snow with my boys for a bit.
I had seen online where people did snow paintings with their kids and I thought how fun!
I decided to repurpose a few household items – spray bottles. You know when you have two of the same type of product and they both just have a little bit of liquid left? Well, I combined the liquids, cleaned the bottle out, and filled with my dyed water.
I also made a target in the snow using the colored water. Then from a distance they tried to hit the target. This was a bit hard as the snow didn’t want to turn into a hard ball well. They had fun trying though!
What is your favorite thing to do in the snow?
