Make the Most of the Snow With Seven Snowy Activities!
At the first sign of snow, adults immediately worry about shoveling, driving delays, and dry skin. But when kids hear about a potential Winter wonderland, they immediately think about all the fun possibilities. While sledding and snowball fights immediately come to mind, there are other ways for kids to enjoy the Winter weather. From festive crafts to tasty treats, check out all the fun things for you and your tot to do with snow.
Use the ground as a game board. Draw a tic-tac-toe board, and use outdoor objects as the X's and O's. For another live-action game, make a checkers board, and use leaves or rocks as the pieces.
Snowball fights are fun, but there is always a chance that someone gets hurt. Instead, host a snowball toss competition, or turn a dartboard into a target for kids to throw snow at and earn points based on where they land.
Channel their inner chef with an oven-free activity. Use cookie cutters to create shapes in the snow. To save their "treats," simply toss them into the freezer.
