Snow Much Fun
Soooo, since the snow shows no signs of stopping, we have decided to try and make the most of it. Saturday we bundled up in head-to-toe snow gear (think full Christmas Story marshmallow people), and headed out to play. With some accessories:
1. Beach toys: The kids loved rummaging through their sand shovels and buckets and were out making snow castles in no time. Added bonus: the snow holds together much easier than sand. Double added bonus: Dad has just as much fun building as the kids.
2. Snow paint: This one is their favorite. Find a couple empty spray bottles or squirt bottles (I stock up whenever I see them in the dollar section at Target) and fill them will water. Add a couple drops of food coloring, and voila: snow paint. The kids used their "paint" to decorate the snow castles. And when the castles were covered in color, they played tic-tac-toe in the snow. Then the loser got mad and started throwing snow balls. Which escalated into snow wrestling. At that point I walked indoors and left them under their father's supervision. Because they are most certainly his children at that point. **How are you making the most of the winter weather where you live??**
