Several days ago, when I figured there was snow thick enough to build a snowman, and the sun was out, I took the kids out for our snowman project. The kids were, of course, more than eager to put on their winter jackets and get started.
We found a nice spot just outside our home, and before I knew it, the kids were already busy making snow angels!
Unfortunately though, the snow was too hard and dry for snowman-making. We just could not pat it into balls. All we got were big chunks of brittle ice. The kids called them “icebergs”!
However, we still had a lot of fun building a snow hill, and playing with snow…
Yes, we had a blast…and some of us threw snow too!
I had to persuade the kids to come on indoors because my ears were starting to freeze!
We ended up with a nice little snow hill, which became a really smooth snow hill when it began to snow heavily a couple of days later.
The kids asked for hot Milo after our activity, which is always a nice comforting way to warm their tummies after a cold outing.
