Get dressed warm and get outside!
Go sledding! Get a sled, make a sled out of cardboard, and just go!
Build a snowman. Roll some balls, big or small. Build a snowman together. Find rocks for eyes, twigs for arms, and wrap him up warm with a hat and scarf!
Have a snowball fight! Show the kids how to make a snowball. Have target practice. Set up something to throw at and let the kids get some practice in throwing!
Build a snow fort. Pack the walls together to build a safe place for hiding out!
While you’re out shoveling the driveway or sidewalk, let the kids help! Or have them make their own paths… maybe a snow maze!
Stomp through the snow and make footprints!
Instead of making your own footprints, look for animal prints! Can you find rabbit prints? Squirrels? Deer?
Discover what’s in your backyard! Not sure? Take pictures of the animal tracks and look them up together later.
Get creative outside in the cold! Paint the snow! Make it colorful!
After a fresh snowfall, go lay out in it and make some snow angels together. Make a whole snow angel family!
And, this one will surely be a hit: Load. Dump. Scoop. Pour. Do it in the snow!
When you’re getting outside in the cold weather, be sure to dress warm and take precautions! And be prepared to warm them up when you get inside! Have a cup of hot chocolate waiting for them with little marshmallows on top!
